Apparatus comunitus creativus
The crazy marble run which coordinates activities in community life
The Apparatus comunitus creativus is an art project as well as a solution to economic dynamics in our Ecovillage Laboratory. The system has been implemented in the valley in the summer 2016 and it is at present at its second stage of evolution. It is by no means a finished system but rather the beginning of a socio-economic experiment. It has also an approach of a game through which we are all brought to reflections about our contribution to the world, its value, our choice of work etc. Have fun and play the game lightly!
With the help of the Apparatus comunitus creativus every participant can dedicate themselves flexibly and spontaneous to activities they like: creative projects, daily tasks (land, garden, building), workshops, music, massages, relaxation etc. Your financial contribution to the project adjusts itself by the means of marbles automatically. Therefore, it is possible to participate for free, with a mix of financial and work contribution or even gain little pocket money if the commitment is accordingly. People who prefer to primarily use the variety of educative and "lucid" happenings (which are offered by the team and participants) will be helping the project financially.
Every participant of our community can freely choose his own personal daily course.
And every person will be fully integrated into the community without distinguishing between different roles (living together participants, volunteers, workshop participants, professionals, collaborators or team members). All can flow naturally - on an individual and group level.
This creates an ideal surrounding to experience real group dynamics together with all attendees and therefore learn self-responsibility while living together.
Thanks to the Apparatus comunitus creativus people with distinct backgrounds and expectations can come together on one plane. The united experience gives fertile breeding ground for self-realisation in the areas of creativity, spirituality and love, and sexuality.
In the Apparatus comunitus creativus colourful marbles are always on the run. They symbolise the energy exchange between the participants and the project in a playful way.
Each participant can pick some of the many activities presented by the Apparatus comunitus creativus. At the same time, the marbles allow to recognise if the contribution to the project (in the form of money, work or other input) is fair according to the received benefit.
Each day the Apparatus comunitus creativus drops 4 marbles from each participant, who has to take care that their stock never runs empty. As there are many ways of getting hold of marbles, taking part in this Laboratory is possible under very flexible conditions.
