The Transition Place is always open, unless it's already booked (currently only wednesday afternoons).
I spoke to Karen today to find out if we can 'pay' them in something else but money, and we have a deal for the food event for one evening: we'll collect kitchenware for them and do a one day upcycling slipper-production workshop in December for which I need to find felt materials (e.g. old coats and blakets). We'll create a wishlist to show what's needed and collect donations through Clemens @ *Leila (Fehrbelliner Str. 92, Berlin-Prenzlauer Berg).
If you have any other creative ideas how we can help them cover their expenses we could negotiate for some more time.
If we want to connect the event in the Transition space to the online world it would be good to set up a signal enhancer for the WLAN (so if anyone in the community has one and can do that for the event - that would be awesome)
