    Building inflatables is group work. During hands-on workshops, participants work together to learn how to fabricate inflatable sculptures – and build strong friendships in the process. Our learning-centered spaces become supportive, convivial environments where participants can openly talk about issues of discrimination, reflect on the kind society we (want to) live in, and imagine potentials for social change. By building inflatables together, we create new ways to live, function, and relate.

    Founded by Artúr van Balen in 2012, Tools for Action quickly became a network of artists and activists giving skill-share workshops in the manufacture of inflatable sculptures and how to use them for political actions.

    The core ensemble now includes Artúr van Balen, Katherine Ball and Malcolm Kratz. Their practice focuses on educational programs and how to engage future generations in political action. Crossing conventional aesthetic and political boundaries, they are experimenting with theories of crowd movement and emergence intelligence. Their current research explores if the contemporary rise in right-wing populism is comparable to the 1930s rise of fascism.
    This workshop is held in cooperation with Montagscafé by Staatsschauspiel Dresden.
