Project: Do It Together - DIT

Do It Together is a kitchen / a tent / a learning playground / a workshop……….

Do It Together – DIT is an ‘opening’ between two exhibitions, a product of the ongoing pandemic and the hectic adaptation necessary to new measures within the cultural sector.

We decided to use this available ‘gap’ as an open space. DIT is an opportunity to focus on projects, ideas, and reflections without an exhibition as the context. During this month, we highlight projects that bring exhibition and community building together.

Framer Framed calls on friends, family, colleagues, neighbors and the public to come and build DIT together. By sharing, cooking, learning, eating, jamming, screaming, meditating, caring and fantasizing together. Stay tuned for further announcements.
