Demonstration at Mauerpark: “Music connects!”

Saturday, 15. September 2018 um 09:30

For many years now, Mauerpark has been a popular meeting place on Sundays for local people, visitors, artists and street musicians. The flea market and karaoke are key features, but it is the street musicians who play a major part in the character of Mauerpark Sundays.

For several weeks now, musicians who have been able to play undisturbed for years have had to put up with residents reporting them to the police, in some cases resulting in them being charged with public nuisance offences and having their equipment confiscated.

A number of visitors to Mauerpark, local residents, and musicians have got together to work creatively and constructively. To draw attention to the situation, they invite you to join them at a demonstration on Sunday in Mauerpark under the banner “Music connects!”

Demonstration

Sunday 14.10.2018 – 2 o’clock
At Mauerpark

Invitation to the opening of the rainbow playground

Saturday, 8. July 2017 um 21:00

A promise is a promise: we got the rainbow back!
And not only do we have a new rainbow, we also have a play ship – an ark complete with giraffe.

We would therefore like to invite everyone who supported us financially and practically and, of course, the children and their parents to come and celebrate this special moment with us.

When: Friday, 14 July 2017 at 3.00 pm
Where: Rainbow Playground in Mauerpark

Anyone who believes that rainbows simply fall out of the sky is sadly mistaken. Turning this dream into reality was a long process and it wasn’t always easy. But the process was as important as the result and lots of people got to know each other and appreciate each other along the way. We reached our goal through a concerted effort.

The original rainbow failed a safety inspection. The local authority didn’t feel able to repair the ageing playground and sent in the chainsaws. We channelled our outrage into a constructive approach to the problem: build a new rainbow in the same place. But there was just one problem – the local authority didn’t have the money to do it. A joint effort on the part of the playground designers and equipment manufacturers SIK-Holz, the Friends of  Mauerpark, the local authority, the  many people who made generous donations and,  last but not least, a host of volunteers resulted in a new playground being built.

The first phase with the western section of the rainbow and a swing was completed in summer 2016 and now in summer 2017 the eastern part of the rainbow and the new play ship have been added. All that remains now is to dismantle the last of the barriers and celebrate the official opening of the Rainbow Playground to the public at 3.00 pm on 14 July 2017.

Celebrating New Year’s Eve in the Mauerpark

Wednesday, 28. December 2016 um 16:33

sylvester_DSC_4578

2016 was a turbulent year for the Mauerpark and 2017 will no doubt also have a few surprises in store.

We have just one request to everyone who is thinking of coming to the Mauerpark to see in the New Year:

Please spare a thought for the wildlife in the park and celebrate without bangers and rockets. A lot of animals live in the Mauerpark and the noise, smoke and flashes of fireworks are terrifying for them. The park is one of the very few safe places for them to seek refuge in the city. Please don’t destroy that for them.

And think of your fellow human beings too! They are not an appropriate target for home-made rockets or bangers. Have a great party and enjoy yourselves but please do not overestimate your skills in handling the fireworks. Remember they can cause serious injury – to you and others.

Please don’t litter the park. Take your empty packaging, bottles and glasses home with you.

Our motto for 2017 remains the same: Respect for one another and commitment to taking care of this precious open space in our city.

The Friends of the Mauerpark wish you fun on New Year’s Eve and all the best for 2017!

For the last 13 years, the organisation Liebet Eure Feinde (Love your Enemy) – with the support of Freunde des Mauerparks e.V., the local authority, numerous artists and residents – have worked to make a Walpurgis Night celebration that is creative and peaceful.

The slogan for the celebrations is quite simple: come and join in!

The following artists and projects are supporting us: Peter & PatTeam-FoxFire CirclesDub der Guten HoffnungJohanna Zeul12 VoltThe OneWoman Company, u.v.m.

Film by Denis Martens – Walpurgisnacht 2013

The police and local authority have given us permission for a supervised fire. Please treat the fire and the fire artists with respect and keep a safe distance. No other fires are allowed to prevent damage to the park’s grass, which is already under stress.

At 7.00 pm we will express our hopes and wishes for peace in the form an interfaith prayer. Everyone of any faith is welcome to join in.

Our celebrations will end at midnight. After 1.00 am, please spare a thought for the people who live near the park and would like to get a good night’s sleep!

We look forward to enjoying a peaceful Walpurgis celebration with you.
