Have you always wanted to see Berlin from the water and ride towards the sunset together with nice people? Are you looking for a new mobile platform for your crazy ideas, the next club meeting or your birthday party? How about a floating concert of your favorite band for spectators along the waterfront? We want to do exactly this and build the “Panther Ray” with your support in late May 2015. The “Panther Ray” is the first raft that actively combines fun on the water, joint engagement, environmental awareness and transparency (open source).
Our aim is to:
We don’t want to be alone on the water – we want to be with you! You can support us on Startnext and be among the first to be invited on our pioneering raft from mid-June 2015. We will return the favor in the best way possible and plan various events. Our project is not for profit but seeks to promote art, engagement and creativity by creating a new mobile space. So, if you have ideas about what to do on the raft, please do not hesitate to write us. We dream about having the arts & craft, a permaculture garden, political demonstrations, workshops and much more! Also, until the end of May 2015 we are looking for support for the building process, expertise in this field, material donations etc. Our construction will take place from May 25 until May 31, 2015.
We are working on an Open Source documentation for the raft and complete group and project process and are looking forward to sharing learnings and insights.
