"Give A Gift Away!" is an art project with six artists from Bremen and five groups from different countries. Each group works together with one artist. They communicate online, by email, phone or similar. Each participant sends an artwork as a gift to another person and receives a gift at the same time. A gift can be created in different art forms - such as dancing, sound making, writing, drawing... Participants film themselves unboxing the gift package and upload their unboxing video to our website. Network and artwork become visible.
You think up an artwork together with an artist. You work together online.
Your artwork can be anything: a picture, sounds, a text, a dance...
When you're done, gift wrap your artwork...
... and then you send it by mail to another participant of the project and at the same time receive a piece of art as a gift yourself.
Film the opening of your gift package as a selfie unboxing video.
Lastly, upload your video to the "Give a Gift Away!" website and view others' videos. Network and artwork will become visible.

& Jose Paniagua
We like to tell stories and sing! With this we want to fill the packages with you from CEIP San Martin in Garganta la Olla in Spain.
I like to play with words and together with the cultural house "Lyuben Karavelov 1940" in Burgas in Bulgaria. I invite you to build something creative with your sentences.
With our theater group from the „Theater am Goetheplatz“ in Bremen we will put something in the box that you will have a lot to do with!
I cooperate with Vrijdag in Groningen in the Netherlands. Let yourself be surprised by a mail that has seen the oceans and yet comes to you by land.
& Andrea Gozzi
I am a multimedia artist and together with the sound designer Andrea Gozzi I will make the package especially interactive with you from the Cooperativa Sociale Arcobaleno in Follonica in Italy.
