Forest is a living creature. It's growing and changing, going through seasons and different rhythms. It contains everything and gives everything space to be. It's a place where all kinds of species coexist and live together. 

La Foresta is a forest too. A forest of stories, images and encounters. It is a platform for interdisciplinary connections around human creativity and sustainable living. It is an art-beyond-art project striving to maximise human connections.

Created and nurtured by Sabina Abdulajeva and collaborators. 


Encounters with others can be mirrors or windows through which we see pieces of ourselves or learn something valuable about the world around. Projects are dedicated to such encounters and conversations in words and images. Here you will find interviews on human creativity, education, change-making, imagination and ability to create worlds of one's own. You will also find here our online gallery space, featuring works of selected artists - authors of La Foresta seasonal portraits


Stories are born in the journeys. They contain bits and pieces of the world we notice. In these stories we share with you impressions from places, initiatives, experiences and things that touch us: from undiscovered natural parks in rural Italy and unknown inspiring little conferences somewhere in Europe to historical monuments of world cultural heritage and latest artistic work of our favourite contemporary creators.


La Foresta Academy is a space to learn. It is currently in pilot state. We have not launched yet. Our vision is to offer interdisciplinary learning experiences in different formats: workshops, labs, courses, retreats. Dedicated to human expressiveness and sustainable living. 


Here you will find dates and snapshots of the events that we organise. Currently our main event series is dedicated to interdisciplinary encounters "Woods in the City". It takes place in Berlin once every season.
