Arts & Crafts Lunch

teambild vom urbanana-Award Nominierten Projekt Arts and Crafts Brunch

Four times a half-year, the Philara Collection and the Bulle Bakery invite visitors to an Arts & Crafts lunch or dinner. A short guided tour in English through the current exhibitions provides a joint introduction to the evening or lunch break. Afterwards, it’s off to Bistro Bulle. There, the traditional artisan bakery Bulle produces cream sourdough breads with natural ingredients – without malts or leavening agents and purely by hand. They attach great importance to their own sourdough cultures and give their dough a lot of time for long freshness and lots of flavor. In addition, each event features a special guest: the curators of the exhibition, who provide insights into the art scene, the master baker and founder, who offers insights into baking culture, as well as artists and special works of art.

The Arts & Crafts-Lunch / Kunst & Abendbrot offer is intended to provide international newcomers with an exchange, a meeting and an insight into the local art scene as well as food and baking culture. With a good creamy bread, you can start a conversation more quickly. Art and urban food offer the ideal conversation starter. We are looking forward to spoiling and stimulating you with delicious cream breads, fresh rolls and banana bread.

Artventure

The idea for Artventure was born in early 2021, and since then a team of three students from Ruhr-Universität Bochum and TU Dortmund University has been working together to realize the project. An app is being developed that is intended to make art in public spaces more accessible, more entertaining and more understandable for everyone.

Art is an important part of our urban society. Sculptures in parks or murals on house facades are just as much a part of it as, for example, light artworks in public places. The works of art are diverse and numerous, yet they share a common problem: they are all too often overlooked or not understood. This is because until now, there has been no place to search for all public artworks across Germany to learn more about them.

On top of that, there is almost never any information about the artworks themselves. Not even the name of the artwork or even further information about the construction method or the meaning of the work can be found on site.

Because there is no information, there is no interaction with the artworks and many people think that they cannot do anything with art because they do not understand it.

To counteract these problems, the app Artventure is developed, in which art offers are listed on an interactive map. The initial focus of this app is on art in Bochum and surrounding cities. Gradually, other cities will be added, so that a NRW-wide map will soon be available, followed by a Germany-wide map. However, users will also have the opportunity to suggest artworks, write informational texts and upload photos according to the principle of crowdsourcing.

A key feature of the app is the route function. Via GPS, users can be guided through a city and listen to or read information about artworks. In this way, art enthusiasts can learn more about the art in their vicinity and gain a new perspectives on their surroundings. The beta version of Artventure is already available for Android in the Play Store and can be downloaded for free.
