This summer, the two colors indigo and sunny yellow inspire three events on the raised bed benches. These special colors come from plants that have been brought to Europe from different parts of the world. They are interwoven in many layers with European colonial history.

Through performative readings, musical interaction between plants and people and coloring together, the artists invite you to listen to each other and to exchange ideas with and about these extraordinary plants. Spiritual aspects and courageous women play an important role in the stories presented.

Inspired by indigenous philosophies, the artists want to explore forms of dialogue at eye and ear level. The readings and the music are recorded and can then be accessed later via a QR code visible on the raised bed benches for everyone to listen to
