June 1 Social Muscle Club Flea Market

Posted on by Social Muscle Club

Come by Sunday June 1 at 11.00 AM at Brunnenstrasse 185, Berlin 10119 (across from the U8 entrance, behind the big blue fence). SMC Flea Market!!!!!  And if you want to get rid of your stuff for a good cause, email us.  We'll sell it and proceeds will benefit the Fest in June.

It’s amazing how much stuff we all have. And just think about what your closet looks like what your garage looks like, the trunk of your car. Can we make sharing as beautiful as modern shopping has become?

Get rid of your old stuff and buy for low!!!!!!

Free yourself from the stuff in your closet (dishes, books, clothes, toys) and buy stuff that you need from others for low money. The concept is that we all give our old stuff away for free and can get things we really need for a low price.

  For Social Muscle Club, all of the little purchases add up to a big sum!

How much does it cost?  We receive your financial support, through your generous donations, for our fest in June!

What is Social Muscle Club? Social Muscle Club is a hybrid of art and non-art, play and usefulness. In Social Muscle Club projects, the usual paradigms of thought are encouraged to change. The aim is to strengthen and develop social strengths and abilities, for the benefit of ourselves and our communities! The methodology combines artistic elements with social interaction. Currently we run a bi-monthly giving and taking club in the Sophiensaele Berlin and June is our first multiple-project “fest”. 

What happens at Social Muscle Club Fest June 11-14?

Four projects: a special giving and taking club at Sophiensaele, a new cross-generational communication at an Altersheim with letter writing as the center point, an edible banquet of art that seeks new interpretations of “richness”, and a project about balance with nature where we marry singing trees.

Until now, Social Muscle Club isn’t state-funded.  It is all made possible through volunteer work and crowd-funding.  With your contribution you will help to pay for all of the things that go into making a festival: space rental, props, technical equipment rental, paying the artists, paying the organisers, publicity, office costs, stage decoration, and more.
