FLORA FAUNA FUTURE – Inspired by Nature

What do frog legs, mycelia, brachiopods and nightingales have in common? They are all pioneers for new materials and innovative ideas for the future!

Actors from cultural and creative industries and natural sciences of various disciplines research materials from nature for the production of very diverse materials. The aim is to produce environmentally friendly and locally producible materials that make the use of resources efficiently and sustainably. This results in new business models, regional added value, local nature conservation and creative areas of application.

Do you work in the fields of Sound, Architecture and Construction, Fashion or Food and Food Packaging and are you interested in innovative materials from nature?

On Tuesday, 29 October 2019, FLORA FAUNA FUTURE invites all (young) professionals with courage to experiment at the Experimental Field of the Museum für Naturkunde Berlin. We invite you to work together with experts from different fields on new ideas for the production, use and impact of innovative materials from nature. Workshop stations:

  • Officina Corpuscoli // Architecture and Construction (English)
  • Lena Ganswindt // Fashion
  • Jannis Kempkens – Plasticula // Food and Food Packaging
  • and many experts of Museum für Naturkunde Berlin.

Participants are invited to make a binding registration for one of the workshop stations. Places are limited – first come, first served!

On 2 December 2019, there will be the opportunity to present the results of the FLORA FAUNA FUTURE workshops to the invited guests at the closing event of the Mediasphere For Nature project at the museum.

FLORA FAUNA FUTURE is a cooperation project of the Kompetenzzentrum Kultur- und Kreativwirtschaft des Bundes within the framework of the Fiction Forum of the Cultural and Creative Industries and Mediasphere for Nature at the Museum für Naturkunde Berlin.
