Congratulations are in order – FRAMED has moved into a permanent space of its own!
I have been working towards this moment for many months, together with amazing friends that helped me in so many wonderful ways and made this possible.
After 15 magical Framed events at my private living room (until my kids and husband said “enough is enough”) and another 5 beautiful and surprising events at different stunning locations around Berlin – I have came to the conclusion that in order to recreate the magic again and again, FRAMED needs a permanent space. A space that could be shaped in such a way that I believe a Culture Salon should look and feel like.
I have looked for the perfect space for a long time until I found “the one”, at the heart of Friedrichshain.
With the incredible help of my mother (she’s a great architect) and my designer friends, I have planned and designed the space. My hope is to create a beautiful, cozy, welcoming space where everyone can feel comfortable. I was dreaming of a space that could be respectful for the participating artists and musicians while feeling like a home to all.
This dream is turning into reality as I write these words. Electricians came yesterday to install the sound system and the lightings for the art works. Next week all the furnitures arrive and soon it will all be ready for you to come and visit.
Now that Framed will have a home (we open officially in May), we will broaden our activities and I would love to share the near future’s plans for FRAMED in its new location with you:
I would like to take this opportunity to thank a few people who worked so hard (and still working) to help me build and open this Salon. Since FRAMED still is a non profit organisation – all of these amazing and talented friends gave their best without asking anything is return. I can’t wait to the day we will get substansial financial aid and I could pay all of them as they deserve –
My family – for being so patient and supportive with this crazy dream of mine.
