======================================================

✩✩✩POTLUCK PICNIC PARTY PARTY PARTY IN THE PARK✩✩✩

****Tuesday the 6th of August, bring foods, drinks, friends, laughter and music instruments, smile and share, and clean up the mess.***

For the extend version, keep on reading..


* Tuesday the 6th of Augus, 2013 in some park downtown in Istanbul we’’ll create Neverland!
(exact location will be given a day before, i have no idea about parks in Istanbul, as i have never been there yet, so i need local advise, use the forum below to bring options!)
* A space where everything is possible, radical self expression, self exploration and synergy.

***We all like meeting people, we all like food, and we all like chilling out in a park, so let’s combine them!!***

================================================

THE PERFECT WAY TO LET FRIENDS AND STRANGERS MIX, MINGLE AND CREATE SYNERGY, MAGIC AND INSTANT HAPPINESS AND BELLIES FILLED WITH LOVE AND GOOD FOOD :D
================================================

There are awesome people all over the globe, yet unfortunately many of them stay strangers, while all people that are your friends nowadays were strangers once.

Let’s get a bundle of beautiful strangers together, with this great variety of colorful people combine all the beautiful talents, create a rainbow, share a inspiring time together and create new awesome friendships!

We are all recycled stardust, we all come from the same source…
Strangers are just friends you havent met yet..

Outline is very simple…

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++


✩ ✩ ✩ SMILE AND SHARE! ✩ ✩ ✩


++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++


*…you bring what you want to share and share it with a smile.

Understand that his is an self made event, meaning..

YOU ARE THE EVENT!

✩ Every person participating;

✩ Bring tasty food,

✩ Bring good drinks,

✩ Bring an open, positive attitude,

✩Bring music instruments, sing, dance laugh!

✩ Share your food, drinks, energy , love and ideas, with all the others

✩ Be ready to share the magic of the instant happiness ;)

✩ Clean up the mess. LEAVE NO TRACE(!)

Basically it is as simple as that!


The whole event will be self created, self sustainable and self resourced so participating in creating the magic is mandatory...)
Don’t sit on the side line and wait to be entertained, but entertain yourself and thereby the others too ;)

Everyone has a talent, and you are invited to express those, let’s get back to kindergarten.

Want to fire-juggle, spit fire, dance, juggle, improve theater, cook, body-paint, sing, draw, make music, make a fire, tell stories you name it you can do it!

The whole event is about self sustainability, self expression, inspiration and exchange of ideas, love, food and music, improvisation, sharing and caring.

I simply set a time and location and everyone participating will take care of the rest;.
As said , location will be choosen on advise from locals)

======================================================

This is a self made event, meaning every one participating is the event.

We are all a link in the chain that creates the magic.
So having that said, rules are few and very simple.

1 *BRING FOOD !, readymade or prepare and cook it here. We’ll be away from civilization for as long as the event takes, so make sure you will be self sustainable and self reliable.

2*BRING DRINKS, (see above)

3*BRING AN OPEN, POSITIVE. ATTITUDE—"Our community is committed to a radically participatory ethic. We believe that transformative change, whether in the individual or in society, can occur only through the medium of deeply personal participation. We achieve being through doing. Everyone is invited to work. Everyone is invited to play. We make the world real through actions that open the heart."

4*SMILE AND SHARE ,share your food, drinks, love and music. Gifting; the gathering is devoted to acts of gift giving. The value of a gift is unconditional. Gifting does not contemplate a return or an exchange for something of equal value."

5*RESPECT EACHOTHERS BOUNDARIES,
(-There will be people from different backgrounds with different (cultural) standards respect that!) behave as a well mannered grown up,
( -The days of pulling a girls hair in order to ask for a kiss are over, if you want something just ask for it.)

6* LEAVE NO TRACE, "Our community respects the environment. We are committed to leaving no physical trace of our activities wherever we gather. We clean up after ourselves and endeavor, whenever possible, to leave such places in a better state than when we found them."

======================================================

***The outline of this event is to let stranger and friends mingle, create instant conservations and friendships while cooking and eating and playing together. ***

***Most people coming will have never met 90% of the others there, don’t be shy, just mix and mingle.***

For some inspiration of what can happen if people combine their creativiness in one place where everything is possible, I’ll add some links to some timelapse vids from Buring man.

Personally i’ve organized impulsive events all over the globe, (from massive 2000+ people pillowfight flashmobs, to dancewalks potluckpicnics small cosy meditation gatherings and singingbowl meditation and badass chaotic creativic explosive parties…bringing people together and share the love and light from those encounters inspire me to keep on doing this, the world is a beautiful place, because we make it like that.

======================================================

~Be the change you wish to see~


As through CS i've met the most inspiring people from all over the world now i would also like to meet some inspiriting people from Croatia.
There are over 52.000 (!) CSssers in Istanbul!!, but most of them have never met eachother before, by throwing this party we'd like to give ya'll a opurtunity to chance that.

I'm sure you've met lots of inspiring people abroad during your trips, and met some awesome people while hosting,but also in your hometown there are new friendships to be made.

You don't have to travel to the other side of the world for that, beautiful (CS) friendships can also just be created just on your doorstep.


Simply remember, you are the party!

______________________________________________________
Personally I have never set foot in Istanbul yet (just a few times the airport during layovers) so have no idea for a good location, but I’m sure locals do, please write down below in the forum where and what time you suggest! ******************************************************************************************************************************************************************
