Free admission

Welcome to the first Berlin presentation of the co-written book ‘Agents of Alternatives – Redesigning Our Realities’. We will have two of the editors presenting the journey of the book and some talks to discuss the diverse topics of the book together with the audience and some of the contributors.

We would be happy if you join us!

‘Agents of Alternatives – Redesigning Our Realities’ is a self-published book exploring the visions, actions, tools and impacts of ‘alternativ-ists’ who are applying creative practices to forge plausible, alternative ways of working and living. It presents well-known international contributors and local activists from diverse fields, including design, the arts, architecture, education, politics, economics, urban planning and city administration, social enterprises, non-governmental organisations, and experts on the Commons. They show how to engage with the locale, communities and distributed diasporas.

This book is for anyone who wishes to become part of positive societal change. We hope it inspires teachers, students, activists, alternative life-stylers, and citizens who wish to re-design our realities.
