TimeOut = writing, photography, improv theatre and discussion…


from February till June 2010

about: Work and Unemployment

On February 13th about 25 people gathered at ISOP to meet the trainers and get to know about the project itself. This meeting was characterized by intensive exchange of views, constructive and stimulating requests to speak and plenty of ideas. In the afternoon the members had the opportunity to experience improv theatre, photography and writing themselves; our trainers did a great job on this. (there was plenty of enthusiastic feedback)

We want to dedicate a big thank you to our participants and training staff again! It was so exciting to bring together those different creative areas and to build a network, what participants have wished for.

On June 25th and 26th the project finished with a reading, an improv show and a vernissage. The big topic “Work” was tackled in different ways to reflect upon it in all its facets, to deal with it and to work on it.


The title “timeOut. Arbeit-S-Los” is kind of a pun and can be interpreted as follows:

- dealing with the fortune of work
- in the sense of starting to work
- leading to an examination of unemployment

Unemployment, as a topic, was presented by Andrea Stadlmann on February 13th as part of our kick-off-event. Here you can download the presentation (in German).

During the kick-off-event our participants contributed to the creation of a climate of confidence. Several people asked to cooperate across borders; Therefore, some took the chance to participate in more than one creativity area.

All participants we got to know at the kick-off-event and during the workshops can be proud of themselves for being part of our highly successful timeOut project; thank you! We are looking forward to meeting you again in timeOut at the Spektral!
