Call for Submissions- Fuller Terrace Lecture Series Berlin

Since the beginning of the Lecture Series in 2008, the series has hosted approximately 100 speakers and over 700 audience members. In the past, we have hosted the Lecture Series in the backyard of 2664 Fuller Terrace and in backyards around Nova Scotia. Our website can be found here:

As always, the Lecture Series is held with the intention of bringing people together to share stories and experiences while building connections within a community. We perceive the 2014 season as an ideal opportunity to expand the traditional format. This year, we will be hosting lectures in Berlin at Studio Nihil Baxter: Stromstraße 11-17. 10551

We will be kicking off the 2014 season on August 15th and running the lectures into October.  

Here is a list of the 2014 topics and dates:

How to be an Adult:
Friday, August 15th, Berlin, 9pm.

Are you technically an adult? What makes you feel like an adult? Do you floss? Do you do your taxes? Do you take your vitamins? Do you watch adult movies? We want stories about your journey into ‘adulthood’.

A Perfect Storm
Friday, September 19, Berlin, 9pm.

A "perfect storm" is an expression that describes an event where a rare combination of circumstances will aggravate a situation drastically. The term is also used to describe an actual phenomenon that happens to occur in such a confluence, resulting in an event of unusual magnitude. For this lecture, we are looking for stories of your/a perfect storm.

Stories that come out of the blue, the Ocean blue, feeling blue, or that happen once in a blue moon. Also about Yves Klein.

All presentations must be 15 minutes in length- they can be fact, fiction, essays, artist talks, experiences, explanations and excuses. Please keep in mind we can do lectures by proxy and are happy to host lectures in both German and English....just send us an proposal... we will probably love it.
