The Culture Collective of the University of Gdansk/Poland was formally launched in October 2004 as one of the student’s groups by the Academic Culture Centre of the University of Gdansk. The projects deal with political, social and ecological issues utilizing different media including literature, music, film or comix. The main goal is to encourage students to organize projects and events connected with their own society – students have an enormous energy, which can be used to get experience, to learn how to cooperate with others and become responsible for the received tasks.

Freiraum e. V. Übersee
The Freiraum e.V. is a not-for-profit organisation founded in 2009 in the small village of Übersee (Germany) midways between Munich and Salzburg. The premises are situated in the center of Übersee – just opposite the train station.
The foremost objective of the Freiraum e.V. is to be an accessible, open-minded platform for all kinds of activities and events – and not only to host cultural events. Thus each and everyone is welcome to start and implement their ideas of an cultural event in their local community.
Another very important objective would be to provide a platform of conversation and community building. Locals and foreigners, familiar and unfamiliar faces, young and old, all of them are mixed together in a friendly and inviting atmosphere. They are provided with a unique opportunity to get together – in a way hardly possible otherwise – and to initiate a dialogue.

“Lovis” is a replica of a freight lugger from the 1920s. In order to keep traditional seafaring alive, the ship was renovated and modified into an educational and project ship from 1998 to 2000.

We are glad to work together with people who would like to experience something special or want to change something in politics and society.
During a Trip on Lovis School classes, youth and adult groups can experience traditional maritime shipping in the context of educational journeys and leisure travels. Space is provided for political, social and cultural initiatives for networking and concrete actions. We also o fer seminars of which the participating groups determine the topics. Seafaring, ecology, history, gender, climate, migration, theater…? We provide the backgrounds and knowledge to implement the ideas together with the groups sailing with us.
Kinobuss (CinemaBus) is a Cinema on Demand, a travelling cinema in Estonia. Kinobuss was established in 2001 by a group of Estonian film professionals to recreate the local cinema network which collapsed in the beginning of the 1990s – to keep the cinema-going culture alive in small towns and villages where the cinemas didn’t exist (anymore) or had been closed down.
Today, Kinobuss works as an exhibitor (travelling cinema), an independent distributor, a film and media educator and as a platform for projects that unite film-culture-education-creativity. Kinobuss main tasks are to promote Estonian films locally and internationally; to bring European films to the communities; to develop understanding and usage of the visual language (film) on a school and hobby education level; to distribute knowledge of film-making amongst children, youth and teachers by providing workshops, courses and trainings.

Principality of Sealand
Sealand was founded as a sovereign Principality in 1967 in international waters, six miles off the eastern shores of Britain. The history of Sealand is a story of a struggle for liberty. Sealand was founded on the principle that any group of people dissatisfied with the oppressive laws and restrictions of existing nation states may declare independence in any place not claimed to be under the jurisdiction of another sovereign entity. The location chosen was Roughs Tower, an island fortress created in World War II by Britain and subsequently abandoned to the jurisdiction of the High Seas.
