Result: Workshop KrisenFEST 17.12.2022
Celebration and crisis: Corona, climate, Ukraine, species extinction
We celebrate Christmas as before with reaction to old crises
Christmas is a chance to work creatively
Being with family. Is also pressure for conviviality
Enjoy atmosphere, beautiful memories, food, traditional, drinking, candles, tree, stars, light, music, fragrance, baking, fir scent
Eat less meat or as an exception, game
Gifting only for the children, no longer for the adults. Or something small to consume
The pressure to give is a problem, the obligation to give something suitable
Packing with paper from the previous year, ribbons ironing?
Travel to escape
Crisis in feast with new crises
The boards have influx, come to limits
More donations? Donations instead of gifts?
You see less light decorations on houses
More economical heating, shock ventilation
Dress warmer, no light evening wear
Organic fir tree or homemade tree
