Forest is a living creature. It's growing and changing, going through seasons and different rhythms. Forest stands for multitudes. 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 told in words, in images, and through encounters, celebrating uniqueness and diversity of people, places and things. It is a platform for interdisciplinary experiences dedicated to collaborative creativity and sustainable living. It is an art-beyond-art project striving to maximise human connections, to contribute to de-standardisation of human life, to more purpose and poetry.
Stories are born in the journeys. They contain bits and pieces of the world we notice: impressions from places and initiatives, experiences and encounters that touch us. Stories are conversations in words and images. Through them we explore subjects we care about, such as human creativity and relationships with the world around, wellbeing and embodiment, ways of learning and working, and how these and other contexts contribute to living a fulfilling sustainable life. You will also find here our online gallery space, featuring works of selected artists - authors of Foresta's seasonal portraits.
Encounters with others can be mirrors or windows through which we see pieces of ourselves or learn something valuable about the world. We don’t know the others we only know ourselves. We don’t know ourselves we only know the others. Here you will find dates and snapshots of the events that we organise. Our main event series is dedicated to interdisciplinary encounters "Woods in the City". It takes place in Berlin once every season. You will also find here our Workshops and learning experiences in different formats: labs, courses, retreats. Dedicated to the art of being human.
