State of Translocality


I am trying to get in touch with Berlin-based Medinat Weimar people. I live in Berlin, was told about the project from a mutual acquaintance, have read your site with interest, and was hoping to meet in person. Do you have any events coming up, or are any of you around to meet informally? I also am considering writing an essay about your project, and would enjoy first-hand contacts. (Making new friends also doesn´t hurt.)
Look forward to hearing back from you!
