Citizen Art Days (CAD) provides a platform that brings citizens, artists and urban actors together in order to address specific common problems using artistic strategies.
On May 2012 the Citizen Art Days were presented during the 12. Bundeskongresses Politische Bildung »Zeitalter der Partizipation« (12th Federal Congress of Political Education "Age of Participation"), taking place in the public space, at the central Berlin's square Alexanderplatz.
Six Earth Forum participants, who joined the training sessions in February, were able to lead three parallel outdoor Earth Forums (a project by Shelley Sacks). Karsten Michael Drohsel provided a city excursion in the footsteps of Flanerie, following the example of Walter Benjamin and Franz Hessel. Further short workshops by Juliane Wedell on shadow economy, Stephanie Hanna on senior street art, Superconstellation on partaking and parting and María Linares on legal/illegal complete the program. Michael Betzner-Brandt closes the CAD – Spot leading an Ich-kann-nicht-singen ("I can’t sing") choir in cooperation with Salam Yousry, Head of the Cairo complaint choir.
