Stiftung Luftbrückendank is helping to support Be-troit. “Be-troit” is a poetry project that takes the historical background of both cities (Detroit and Berlin) as a starting point for the discovery of similarities and/or differences. “Participating artists worked together to use poetry, spoken word, or rap to explore the Airlift phenomenon in some of their performances. “Be-Troit takes up the variety of trends, styles, and genres in Detroit’s contemporary poetry scene and would like to bring these to Berlin, which has seen the development of a poetry, spoken word, and hip-hop landscape in the last ten to twenty years that is internationally connected and yet remains anchored in its own subculture. The project initiates active poetry encounters between young people who were once incarcerated...” (Olad Aden) The Be-troit delegation traveled from Berlin to Detroit from 11 to 20 September 2016 to give workshops and concerts there. The artists also recorded an entire album and shot a documentary film. Both will be premiered in Berlin in the early summer of 2017.

Hip-Hop Festival Project

The second part of the festival, a platform and “network meeting” for very diverse groups united around the hip-hop/street dance scene, was held in Berlin in November 2016 with support from Stiftung Luftbrückendank. A dance group choreographed and filmed a piece called “Mobility and the Airlift.” You can see a video and some photos here: at FACEBOOK:

Graveller is a bikepacking adventure that starts at the Airlift Memorial in Frankfurt/Main and follows the flight corridor used by the Berlin Airlift past Darmstadt, Aschaffenburg, and Fulda to finish at the Airlift Memorial in Berlin. Participants bring their own supplies. The former corridor was 20 miles wide and served as a basis for mapping out the CBG route, which is about 550 to 600 kilometers long and runs along “off-road cycling trails.” The CBG is named after the famous “candy bombers.”
