What? This is an ongoing project and cultural experiment we would like to share at the CCC. We are working towards the creation of an open source toolkit for creating ‘new religions’ – facilitating groups, communities or individuals to create their own cultural, spiritual, or religious practices, according to their own needs and desires.

The idea is to reflect on what it is we really need in life - to belong, to look for meaning, find purpose or guidance, to hold and share certain values. To take apart and examine existing practices and structures, be they religious or secular, that respond to those needs. And to actively create new sets of practices by hacking what has gone before, by creating something new, or through a combination of the two.

This workshop is a prototype experience we want to test towards the development of the open source toolkit.

Who are you and why are you doing this? We don’t claim to have any answers ourselves, We are not experts, we are not researchers, we are people who have a personal interest in exploring these ideas and in creating a space to do so with others. We have combined experience in experimental theatre, game design, community building, interdisciplinary collaboration, art, science, daily life and long periods of staring blankly into space. And no, we’re not trying to start a cult, convince you to sleep with us or give us all your money.

This workshop is designed ideally for about 20 people.
