We need people to set up the Kiez Burn backbone - building the infrastructure that enables the important shit to happen, so builders can transform to sparkle ponies and go dash in the green fields, eating strange flowers & glittery sweat on dancefloors & art projects alike.
Build Plan 2021 work in progress
by Build manager Realizer: @Natacha Kromatik
Build Technical Maestro: @Don
What is build/setup?
This year the production team will not be building anything big (no gate or effigy). Instead, we are focused on setting everything up, enabling the event to take place.
Build starts: Friday evening and goes until morning of Wednesday
A full overview of all the tasks: https://realities.kiezburn.org/f61f1996-a5e0-41eb-83e3-625429a6f94e and please sign up:
either for the general need (so being build lead)
or for singular responsibilities, and then be responsible for coordinating it.
The big chunks of work:
help set up the volunteer kitchen
clean out storage, transport it to site, lay it out and distribute it fairly among infrastructure projects (several days) - https://photos.app.goo.gl/DwMLns4UmusrPz2S6
enabling signs, site perimeter, sound checks,... to do their job
support Toolhaus operations (mainly logistics) - recruit a toolbitch
purchasing & setting up the temporary shelters for feuerwehr (1 tent) & security (2 more tents on each entry) &
first aid (another tent)and one back up (one last one) - 4 tents
clean up the whole site of things that block kieze
organize a van (e.g. sprinter) for transporting shit around site and to/from storage from build to end of strike. (insured!!!!) (so friday before event to Tuesday/Wednesday after event) (everyone needs to be able to drive it)
assist in volunteer coordination - https://kiezburn.org/get-involved/volunteer/
What do you have to do here?
communicating with everyone that potentially needs help in getting ready
planning of the work & determine the amount of volunteers needed
purchasing the relevant items (and van)
discuss budget with KBORG (@alexxx is your man there)
during build: be available from early morning till evening, constant liaising with everyone (do they need help?)
What is next?
How you divide the responsibilities, is to be determined by you. Some possibilities:
there is a build/setup lead and then coordinates between everyone so that all the responsibilities are taken (https://realities.kiezburn.org/f61f1996-a5e0-41eb-83e3-625429a6f94e)
there is no build lead - then you need to work as a team, get together etc. and make sure all the responsibilities are shared between you
some other setup I have not thought of.
Needs to be defined with finance
last year' build lead
org questions? board
other peeps: see realities + Add your name here too!
Decisions that the Kiez Burn community took in the past that are important for this tasks:
No burn without Build Lead
No burn without Strike Lead
Burn and Strike Lead need to be two different people
Both need teams of each minimum 5 volunteers
Both leads need to have build experience

BUILD IN DETAILS
Make a build plan
What needs to be built?
How many people do you need?
What material do you need?
Which tools will you need?
What is in storage? check inventory
Do we need electricity during build?
What needs to be built?
Volunteering kitchen (that’s really the first thing because you need to feed peeple asap)
First aid station (brings their own tent but will need a handwashing station)
Table/wooden plank, maybe a bench, hooks and a Cork wall/ Whiteboard (something, where we can pin/hang up Paper)
Small hut (aprox 1,5-2 x 2-2,5m) In storage there should be the wood we used last year (The Saloon actually built it) One of the walls was the tarp with the map of KB.Rangers will bring their own tent (aprox 2.5 x 2.5m) Needs around 3-4 committed hippies during half a day at least. Do you remember better, @Jan-Christian Kaspareit?
Site lead station
Setting up toilets
Support water set up
Support electricity set up
Conduct safety assessment of the site and fix up (eg holes, pitfalls etc)
Organize the lightning together with lightning lead
Other build team duties
Rent the build van and drive the van to the site
Get stuff out of storage
Manage general storage
Tidy up the site (usually we get a messy site and spend half a day cleaning up trash/ bottles/ wood etc)
Molding if needed
Fix up missed side works eg broken stairs etc
Manage the toolhouse (renting Kiez Burn tools to Kieze during build)
Renting tools from Baumarkt eg Power Oga
Prepare a tool inventory and buy new tools (this is definitely a big task this year since we have mostly used private tools aka Waldo’s in the past)
