The project UFO is about planting a Rural-Urban Animal-Farming Trend in the language of an extraterrestrial urban design into the Twilight Zones of Suburbia of Prague. With the absence of public life in suburbia, we aim to counteract this circumstance and generate activity by implementing UFO. Our UFO landed – with 5, blue egg laying chicken on board – in Prague Psary. On-site, together with local partners, we launched a chicken task force & buildt a rocket-castle with the skills and out of the ideas of our local partners - the kids. Our partners took over responsibility for the UFO-pilots and organized a fancy aurucana - rooster.

 

 

Landung in Prag Psàry - Dolni Jircany ... nach Entwürfen auf der Tafelfarbe des UFOs - gezeichnet von flanierenden Kids - handeln die Kids der ortsansässigen Grundschule in der freiwilligen Nachmittagsgestaltung einen neuen Prototypen Wohnen aus: das ultimative Hühnerhaus! So wird ein 'Rocketcastle' gewählt und gebaut, um mit der neuen Architektur die Auracana-Hennen zum Bleiben zu gewinnen. Sägen, Schleifen, Streichen, Schrauben - fertig ist die edle Schloßlaube - Einzug hinter die Fassade - das UFO muß weiter reisen ... die Hühner akzeptieren das Angebot, stürmen die neue Bleibe - ziehen ein und legen blaue Eier - ein Hahn wurde neulich organisiert und ist zugezogen.

OUTTA SPACE!

The first day of the conference will be dedicated to panel discussions with invited experts from different countries. In the evening, each CULBURB project will be introduced in a short presentation by its authors. Both events will be open and accessible to public.

 On the second day, we will focus more on CULBURB itself.
