DSC Viborg and a European Spring animation project growing in the fields of rural Denmark

March 10 marked the first meeting for the Viborg DSC!
Of course, everybody knows Viborg: the once medieval capital and later seat of the Danish Reformation, now sleepy student town. In a classroom at The Animation Workshop VIA University College, nine wide-awake students from Latvia, Israel, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Italy and Brazil met and ping-ponged ideas.
A week earlier, four of us held an afternoon talk about DiEM25 and the European Parliament election in the homebuilt Høgni Pub. It was an informal event with beer and snacks, but with a serious agenda and a lot of words per minute.
At the very end, we asked if anyone would be interested in collaborating on a collective animation project to promote the ideas presented. Many people signed up, and here we are, back at the classroom.
After recapping the main policy proposals of DiEM25, we had an open discussion – sharing ideas on how to structure the animation project and about expectations. We decided on holding a YES workshop next Sunday, in which no ideas are shut down.
Here we will – in line with the spirit of DiEM25 – collectively spit into a big bucket of ideas, look at them all and then choose which ones to work from.
After the ideas have been chosen as a starting point, we will let people work freely and intuitively from the idea – and arrange a collective crunch day where we all start animating early in the day and work until night – to create support and the opportunity to share knowledge.
Then, those of us who is interested to work on the text/voice of the project, will sit down and work to make a clear and relevant narrative. In the end we planned our participation in the 15th of May school strike and other future events.
If you would like to join us, come along! All are welcome.
Greetings from DSC Viborg

Don’t Look Up has become a successful movie because people are identifying with it. Many problems that we face are being problematised by it.
