What can we do for you?

Urban ideas – just give us a call and we will organize a participatory urban planning clinic. We are experienced in participatory methods and planning. We familiarize ourselves with the area in need of new drive, collect ideas from residents of the area, turn the ideas into appealing visual presentations, and are happy to walk along all the way to the implementation of the ideas!

Art projects – we are interested in filling in empty spots with inspiring ideas. When we make bypassers smile, we consider our project a success. In addition to the street art projects, we create paintings and installations, take photographs, write, and, if paid, also dance and sing.
