Berlin's Food inspires you !

How did the idea of the project "Berlin's Food inspires you" come to you?

 

It’s easy to explain how the project started: two passionate people with the spirit of initiative were brought to spend a couple of months in Berlin and were convinced of the benefactions of inspiration and experiences exchanges !

 

Tell me a bit more about yourselves…

 

We are Clara and Guillaume and we have a keen interest in every kind of initiatives blooming we can observe around us. More specifically by those who allow people to evolve with their habits, in all kind of areas, in order to always get closer to what feels right in relation to their values.

Over the past few years, we participated to this multiplication by developing projects around food, mobility,... and have therefore gotten some experience out of it.

Why did you specifically focus on food?

 

We think food is a central thematic ; it’s a daily need that happens more than once a day and characteristic of absolutely everyone.

 

It’s a daily need that makes it the basics for anyone who’s looking for a more serene life, more coherent with its intuitions and who therefore desires to adapt their behavior towards their body and environment.

 

Characteristic of any human being, in this way food opens us up to a great diversity of human exchanges.

Why is Berlin so interesting on the subject?

 

Berlin is a very enthusiastic city where everything looks possible. It’s intriguing, attractive, and so it gathers a multitude of different kind of people and different kind of trends. It makes it incredibly inspirational.

 

You’re talking about “inspirational”?

 

We are convinced that we would all better exchange our experiences, learn from other people’s knowledges.

We would very much like to introduce you to the ultimate gathering of initiatives.

As a matter of fact, it’s about food, innovation and sharing of informations.

How is this going to work practically?

 

For four months, we are going to discover local initiatives all around the city. We will meet their managers, analyze the way they work, discuss their development perspectives, etc.  

 

In order to make you feel the inspiration out of those projects, we will describe to you the way we experienced it, we will analyze the project in relation with our food’s vision and we will suggest development's approaches or lines of thought for those who’d like to try it.

 

This precious information will then be brought to you, for free, via our website, under the form of “information sheets”. That way, we hope that everyone of you - citizens keen on developing projects, authorities, professionals in need of refreshing their projects, etc. - will get interesting information and will be inspired for the realization or the improvement of their own projects.

 

For instance we could talk about an italian restaurant having his own botanic garden, cultivated in permaculture and using majorly products that were grown out of it; we could also talk about a “test” urban farm, combining aquaponics and gray waters treatment of a block of houses; a 100% vegan supermarket;...

So that you have an idea of the diffusion mode of information, do not hesitate to take a look at our website (which is currently being created) : www.foodinspiration-berlin.info !

How do you select the projects around food?

 

All over Berlin, we meet a multitude of diverse initiatives, though a natural filter leads our selection: it’s our food's vision! Quite naturally, we look into certain projects if they match with one or many points of this vision.

 

On one hand, we believe in a diet that brings what one body needs, considering it holistically and participating to his self-fulfillment by developing its senses, giving pleasure, etc.

 

On the other hand, we believe in a diet that is careful of the environment. We want it more conscious of its impacts according to the kind of products, sectors, recommended production but also in terms of evolution of consumption patterns, of sharing, social network, education,...

Let’s sum up

 

WHO?

 

Clara and Guillaume, every kind of initiatives blooming passionate people

 

What?

 

A website bringing information on innovating projects related to food for free

 

How?

 

Going around town, discovering, describing, analyzing and discussing those projects.

 

Where?

 

Initiatives discovery and analysis: in Berlin, for four months

Distribution of the information: on our website, our networks and YOU!

 

WHY?

 

To take part in inspiring innovative projects because we are certain that on every level, we are right to share on our good deals and to learn from other people.

Allocation of funds

Where do the 3 100 euros come from?

 

If Guillaume only works on the project during the weekend, Clara does it full time which makes it impossible for her to get another paying job on the side. Therefore, via this campaign, we hope to get a participation to our Berlin’s expenses.

Then, it seemed very important to us that the information had to be translated in english so that it could reach most of the people.

So that we can continue, we will sometimes have specific expenses in order to experiment some initiatives and reach some field information : entrance fees to various events to discover news projects, purchase of some products to experiment it, ... 

Eventually, so as to make the information accessible, to describe our project and ease the communication, we builded a website and bought domain name for a period of one year.

We do it via wordpress which seemed to be the cheapest option because it doesn’t request professional intervention and it still has a nice depiction.

Kiss Kiss Bank Bank also takes 8% on collected sums.

For the rest, trust our passion for the subject, trust our enormous will of realizing this project, and trust our limitless imagination! ;-)

 

Participation to the team work in the field for 4 months (2000€)

English translation (250€)

Experimentation, etc. (500€)

Website, accommodation etc. (100€)

KKBB expenses (248€)

 

TOTAL AMOUNT = 3100€

 

Can you tell us a bit more about what we get as compensation?

 

In order to “spice up” your support to the project, we tried to find the most adapted compensation to your potential needs, but also to suggest what we can best offer! We hope it it will fill you with joy and satisfaction!

 

For 5€ and more: all our gratitude and a huge THANK YOU!

 

For 10€ and more: your name in our acknowledgments + previous compensations.

On our website, we have a “thank you letter” and we’ll also add your names to the end of every project form. 

 

For 20€ and more: a “surprise” postcard from Berlin + previous compensations.

We don’t want to spoil the surprise so shhhh! ;-)

 

For 50€ and more: small "Inspirations Box" full of Berlin's products and attentions delivered at your place + previous compensations.

This compensation is only available for a delivery in Berlin or Brussels and surrounding (+/- 30 km).

 

For 75€ and more: invitation to a projects presentation and discussion's drink + 5, 10 and 20€'s compensations.

Two drinks will be organized at the end of our experiment : one in Berlin, another in Brussels. During those events, we'll quickly present the different projects we've focused on during our stay and will after get some time to discuss all together about this topic.

 

For 100€ and more: 2 times 2 hours of skype in order to challenge your project / ideas / questioning around food + 5, 10, 20 and 75€'s compensations.

Did you or are you launching a project in relation with food and you want to talk about it? We have experience in developing projects in this area and offer you two “skype” sessions of two hours each to help you specify your goals, to challenge you, to bring you our point of view.

 

For 200€ and more: large "Inspirations Box" full of Berlin's products and attentions delivered at your place + 5, 10, 20, 75€'s compensations.

This compensation is only available for a delivery in Berlin or Brussels and surrounding (+/- 30 km).

 

For 500€ and more: a day in your company to challenge your project / ideas / questioning around food + 5, 10, 20 and 75€'s compensations.

It’s a more complete version than the previous one, for the same profile of Kiss Kiss Bankers!

Note that this compensation will only be possible in Berlin for June, July and August 2014 and in Brussels (with a certain flexibility) in September 2014.

 

What if the amount is exceeded?

 

If you desire to keep on supporting us beyond the wanted budget, we need to talk to you about a project that we have had in mind for a while ;-)... We might be living in another foreign city for a few months. Yet, everything comes from our will to inspire and from the feeling that we’d all better exchange on our good deals and behaviors. Therefore, why not renew the experience somewhere esle?

If that project was to be realised, the exceeded money would allow us to reduce the wanted amount via another possible participating financial campaign or another source of support.

 

If it didn’t come to a realisation, we would give the exceeded money to a project connected to food that shares some of the points of our vision. It would be a project wanting help via Kiss Kiss Bank Bank or one or many crushes that we would have had during our stay here in Berlin.

 

Thank you very much for your interest and potential support!

 

Do certainly not hesitate to contact us for any question or ask for precision on certain points, we will be delighted to reply to you!
