Valentina Karga in collaboration with MINA – Leben in Vielfalt e.V.
In our growth-driven culture, rest is a theme that is either neglected or commodified. However, growth needs rest; there cannot be one without the other. Growth alone is unsustainable and rest alone is inertia. Facilitating rest is care, and an important active measure for oneself, for a community or the planet. Valentina Karga invites participants to join her in producing a soft circular infrastructure with textiles. This piece of cloth will be coloured with natural dyes and participants will be able to draw on them with earthen pigments. By doing so, they will learn about the alchemy of natural colour and create empowering thoughts to counterbalance the culture of growth with one of rest and care.
