Kulturalny Kolektyw

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.

More about Freiraum e. V. Übersee

So the clubhouse becomes a meeting point in a number of ways. Through different events and the opportunity to use free of charge space in the building and its surroundings, varied and exciting projects have been implemented. The members of the organisation have started to organize concerts, cabaret shows, book readings and poetry slams. They also work with young people in the field of media education, they setting up a music studio and many other community projects. One main goal of the concept is to offer an affordable cultural program and to stop rural exodus. Although big cities have a strong pull on audiences and sort of “monopolise” cultural diversity, we think there is no need for centralisation. Especially in the field of culture and art, there should be a wide diversity of “stages” to support different, especially non-mainstream, expressions and tastes. The Freiraum e.V. started in 2009 without any public funding and is therefore able to preserve autonomy. The social-enterprise principle is interpreted by the organisation, by gaining money through commercial events in order to support social work. Why not taking part in a way of life, which is not defined by exclusion and survival of the fittest but by inclusion and survival by cooperation instead? See you at the next Freiraum event!

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.

More about Kinobuss

One of the main goals of Kinobuss is to combine and integrate film-making (storytelling) with education to enrich the ways of learning and teaching. Kinobuss is mainly project-based and financed by Estonian Cultural and Educational Funds, as well European Funds (within the international co-projects). Throughout the years, Kinobuss has been invited to visit other countries, within festivals and international co-projects – to introduce the Estonian film culture and educate teachers and youngsters to make films. Main reasons to engage the project: We want to keep alive the network with Moviemiento and other organisations involved in the international cooperation on the field of audiovisual culture and media literacy.

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.

More about Principality of Sealand

The independence of Sealand was upheld in a 1968 British court decision where the judge held that Roughs Tower stood in international waters and did not fall under the legal jurisdiction of the United Kingdom. This gave birth to Sealand’s national motto of E Mare Libertas, or “From the Sea, Freedom”. The official language of Sealand is English and the Sealand Dollar has a fixed exchange rate of one U.S. dollar. Passports and stamps have been in circulation since 1969 and the latter decade of the 20th century saw an impressive expansion in its activity both socially and industrially as it began to develop a growing economic base which underscored its long-standing membership of the international community of States.
