TGEU’s Creative Activism workshop in Berlin

10th October 2015

http://tgeu.org/putting-a-trans-mark-on-the-city-of-berlin/

As part of an international workshop on Creative Activism 17 trans activists and artists from 13 European countries developed a creative campaign to mark some of the spaces in Berlin which have symbolic significance for trans people.  Within 24 hours activists developed from scratch the campaign including a logo, a trans map of Berlin, origami workshop, living library and stands where Berliners can juggle with their gender and enjoy free coffee.

During the workshop activists chose to work on the burning issue of violence against trans persons, as it affects their communities daily. Within Europe, Italy and Turkey lead with 28 and 37 reported murders respectively since 2008. Activists marked the embassies of these two countries on the specially designed map along with places where trans people have been attacked in Berlin.

One of the outcomes of the workshop was the creation of a map, in English and German, which depicts some places of Remembrance, Culture and Celebration in Berlin. The map was created during the 24 hour workshop in Berlin, and forms part of other actions, which encourage people to remember and learn about trans stories. It includes locations marked in different colours, to show a spread of trans remembrance (spots of violence), culture and celebration, as well as marking the embassies of Italy and Turkey in Berlin. These two embassies are marked as the two countries have the worst record of reported murders in Europe. The map is not exhaustive, and there are definitely more places to be added to the map in the future to give a more comprehensive look of the city.
