This is a celebration of human connections, not just a party. It’s an exchange of hidden and invisible energies that lead to magical and unexpected moments. We are people with different stories and experiences who can inspire, strengthen, and give each other courage for our creative work and the formation of our daily perceptions. These hidden resources and energies lie in our community as well as within ourselves and can be teased out and unfolded through an exchange with one another.

It’s a giving and a receiving act.
And so is the silence in between.
It’s an action and reaction.
It’s a love letter to you. To us. To the universe.

We want to create a playground with experimental, subliminal, improvised, and self-growing approaches. We want to let the process run free. Because the most beautiful compositions are found in chaos.

Together we will explore the following questions:

  • How can we encourage more of these “magical moments”?
  • How can we describe these "magic moments" and make them visible?
  • How can a physical space encourage the release of this energy?
  • How does the framework have to be designed to create sustainable dynamics and connections?
  • Which medium requires our creative and intersocial action?
  • Do you believe in miracles and magic?

We believe that the answers will be found in doing and in sharing. We hope to break from our daily perspective — our patterns of behavior — and escape from the familiar and the obvious. Magic Moments aims to produce friction and energies that create sparks in the universe.
