The term creativity goes back to the Latin word creare “to create, make”. Finding access to one’s own creativity also means being able to take on new perspectives and to leave conventional thinking patterns behind. That’s exactly what we want to encourage you to do as part of this years LAB* Create. In various workshops, there is room for collective creative experimentation with a wide variety of approaches and disciplines. Everything is possible, nothing is neccesary. One of our creative workshops will be hosted by Drink and Draw Berlin. In response to the lack of opportunities at today’s art universities to professionally learn the craft of painting, this art collective opened their own alternative drawing school aboard a 90 year old ship right on the River Spree in Berlin. At the Artlake Festival, they invite you to participate in various drawing classes in a relaxed atmosphere and to explore this medium in an interdisciplinary manner through workshops and performances.
