TELL ME MORE!
In this group we will just enjoy walking on the center of the path to the future of Amsterdam - in a fun way! What we will do is to give a follow up to the Occupy movement. You know, these dreamers in tent.... People had no idea! Where Occupy had a clear idea what protesting against, they had no idea what they were protesting for. But.. We don't know either!
BTW, this Culti Mokum Meetup is the loud part of the Culti Group Meetup. The Culti Group Meetup is growing up now - this where the Culti Mokum Meetup is loud and new! This Movement is going to change Amsterdam first, The Netherlands second - and the rest of world after that.
Changing Amsterdam is changing the Netherlands. Just like changing Berlin is changing Germany and changing Paris is changing France. Amsterdam is the center of it all in The Netherlands. So we lead by example- the others will follow through copy. And all of us.... Will make it fun! Because if it's not fun than it's not a part of this movement!
Politicians and government are not really welcome, but other than that everyone is welcome :)
FROM HISTORY THROUGH TODAY TO TOMORROW
In a way this movement is Provo 2:0. Because being provocative by making the people in power look like the relative powerless people they seem to be, shouldn't be to hard. The problem in the world is that people don't work with each other but work against each other - and that's the thing we will be provocative about.
Provo 1:O took place in the sixtees. In Amsterdam, of course. Where else? They already saw the real problem - which is not greed. No. It's overconsumption - but they didn not really see the solution. And.. Neither do we :)
Provo 2:0 looks at the western world, and sees a world that is free of any meaning worth mentioning. The reason is that Provo 2:0 has not been able of defining the meaning of life. And that's the problem! Because of seeing no meaning in life, the people of the west want to think a little but consume a lot. It's not the greed of the 1% of the 1% that is causing this - they are just taking advantage of it.
The first plan name of the Culti Movement will be: the white hearts plan! All this consuming for the sake of consuming is destroying the environment. The reason why people consume more and more in order to fill that empty place in their soul is because people are not seeing any reason to be alive. And... Neither do we! So what is the real problem? The problem is that life seems to have no deeper meaning at all! So let's protest against the fact that life doesn't seem to have any meaning at all! And lets do this in a FUN way.
There is a catch though... Where the good life the 99% of all of us want to life is just a bit meaningless, there the in a material way very good life the superrich are living makes the already meaningless life of people living in the ghetto and the poor nations even more meaningless... So lets protest against social injustice too.
Do we have the better idea? No. Do we have idea's that at least don't stink? YES, WE HAVE! We have idea's that might not give all anwers in live. But we DO have idea's about creating social justice for ALL. And the world needs this - we need this! Provo 2:0 is all about sharing these ideas's - and this is all we are about :)
The white hearts plan = sharing idea's!
WHAT IS CULTI MOKUM?
Just throw away your schoolbooks – the true story of Amsterdam gets told here! What started off as a Frisian settlement on a terp a LONG time ago,now changed into the international city Amsterdam is these days. As we all know, these days not Frisian but English is the language that matters the most in this exiting city. English opens the doors for you in Amsterdam. Dutch is relevant for connecting to the Dutch speakers more than anything else. So for playtime, we use English.
Almost every adult in Amsterdam talks English, but lots of people in Amsterdam also talk Dutch. This used to be the most important language inthis city until some years ago. Dutch, of course, still is the language in public administration and basic education. For REALLY understanding thiscity you still need Dutch. There for, this group is bilingual. Which is fun! And FUN is the thing that matters the most in the group! Our citywalks, our educational events, our parties, our just drinks meetups, our daytrips and our dinners, they ALL have ONE thing in common: they are fun! Already convinced?
Then don’t hesitate – and just sign up!
