„These four crisis are all very different, but they have one thing in common: they can be prevented."
LIFE ACT is a Do-it-Yourself or Better- Together-Network of creative, visionary people from music, art, culture and media. We are united not only by a mission, but also a shared vision: We want to create awareness for the suppressed crises on this planet and to give back a voice to the unheard.
With LIFE ACT 2018 again we support aid projects in the crisis regions of East Africa and Yemen. In Berlin's Prince Charles we have put together a carefully selected line-up with international artists from the Electronic Music scene. All artists donate their fees.
We guarantee: One HUNDRED PERCENT of the proceeds go to humanitarian aid projects as emergency aid. With LIFE ACT 2018 we’ll support aid projects in the crisis regions of East Africa and Yemen of the ‚DAHW - Deutsche Lepra- und Tuberkulosehilfehilfe‘, We keep you informed about current donation partners on an ongoing basis. Any kind of media distribution contributes to the success of the event and to the support of people in need.
Next to the musical line up there will be many more specials:
AUTHENTIC AFRICAN CUISINE
The African Food Festival Berlin brings the best of healthy and delicious African food culture to the capital. Since its successful launch in 2016, it has established itself as one of the most popular street food markets in Germany, offering an incomparable platform for innovation and diversity in African cuisine. All nations come together here: from locals and connoisseurs of African-American cuisine to gourmets who feel like going on culinary excursions. With its popular location, the initiators Juice Owuso and Liane Kobe attract around 8,000 visitors a year and are increasingly establishing Berlin as a new European hotspot for African cuisine.
JIVAMUKTI YOGA SESSIONS WITH PETROS HAFFENRICHTER
Jivamukti guru Petros Haffenrichter starts the festival day with an exclusive Deep House Yoga session. The philosopher and musician Petros teaches YogaAsana, Pranayama, meditation techniques and Bhakti Yoga. He leads part of the Jivamukti Teacher Training and has been organizing yoga retreats in his Creteashala for over 15 years. His goal is to return again and again to where we find our peace, regardless of external circumstances: to our heart. Often our intellect, our body, our expectations, preferences, dislikes and fears stand in our way. Yoga gives you the opportunity to free yourself layer by layer from the obstacles that prevent us from experiencing ourselves as we actually are: Free, wild, full of love and joy - without conditioning, without fear.
WITH 3D GLASSES DIRECTLY ON SITE
Let DAHW experts inform you on site and get exclusive insights into their East Africa projects with 3D glasses. DAHW's commitment to worldwide humanitarian aid begins where people are in danger or need as a result of natural disasters, epidemics, conflicts or internal unrest. Employees with many years of experience work on the African continent, including in Yemen, Ethiopia, Liberia, Nigeria, Sierra Leone and Southern Sudan, and have access to reliable local partner networks.
EXHIBITION: EAST AFRICA IN PHOTOS
A picture says more than a thousand words: In cooperation with "DAHW - Deutsche Lepra- und Tuberkulosehilfehilfe", Laura Lewandowski, journalist and co-founder of LIFE ACT, travelled for one month in Uganda and Ethiopia in April 2018. Their approach was to question: Where do our donations really go? Where is help needed? On the spot, she saw for herself. She recorded her experiences from the world's largest refugee camps in reportage texts and in pictures she exhibited at the festival.
