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
