Beloved KiezBurn family,
Summary: Let’s create a Dreams platform to fund & find volunteers for Corona initiatives!
We are facing radical challenges. As individuals, as community, as society, as humanity.We are being called to pause and rethink. Let go of the attachment to reliability towards creatively co-creating a new way. KiezBurn is not just a physical space. To “burn” is a state of mind.
Kiez Burn amid change
KiezBurn has not been canceled - It has transformed and it is up to us how we will shape it to respond. How are we going to lead us through this change?How can we use this to bring us closer together and make us stronger? How to harness that uniquely human paradox in living more empowered lives in even the most vulnerable-making circumstances?
Dreams and Art are very special elements of our lives and KiezBurn, where we co-create a supportive environment for Self Expression of Art that provides connecting opportunities...and during these times we need that more than ever.
We would like to create a Dreams Platform for dreams and projects that connect during these times. That brings us closer together. That express our being artistically. From funding to skills, we want to enable a way :)

How do we set up the platform so people can easily donate to the different causes? (there was the idea to build in a donate button for every dream)
Is the Dreams Platform best suited for people to volunteer in helping out others’ Dreams? (there is the button to “volunteer now”, but probably could be placed in a better place)
What is the criteria for dreams to be uploaded?
How can we ensure transparency?
“...We need the courage to create ourselves daily, to be bodacious enough to create ourselves daily — as Christians, as Jews, as Muslims, as thinking, caring, laughing, loving human beings. I think that the courage to confront evil and turn it by dint of will into something applicable to the development of our evolution, individually and collectively, is exciting, honorable…” Maya Angelou
