SATB returns to the city where it began almost two years ago for a grande project finale which will serve to bring the various SATB threads and themes together. Staff, learners and clients will work together to create a final exposition to present before public audiences, networking with the various peer organisations, clients and public with whom SATB has encountered over the last 2 years. The A commemorative, handmade screenprinted booklet, including graphic and text excerpts from the project, including relevant contact and help addresses will be created over the 5 day activity plan to be distributed amongst the participants and visitors and on this site as a PDF - Zine.

This is a small village with diverse agricultural buildings set amongst 35 hectares of woods and farming land which was bought via auktion in 2018 with the support of regional government and the foundations Trias and Edith Maryon. The organisational group "Zusane" incorporates people with different lifestyles and professions who share a belief in solidarity and social and ecological awareness. They bring professional expertise from farming, artistic, political, social sciences and pedagogic fields. The perspective is for the group to expand, be intergenerational as well as to assimilate with the existing village residents, some of who have been living there since East German times.
The village was a Jewish learning center for handicrafts before being taken over and transformed by the National Socialists into a work camp, from where many people, including children, were sent to the Auschwitz death camp. In East German times , the village was a VEG (Volkseigenes Gut) farming collective.

Kesselberg is a wooded 50 hectare area close to Berlin, which was formerly a military communication base, now re-imagined to provide an opportunity for people to live an ecological, social and cultural alternative lifestyle. There are approximately 100 people from different countries living and working there. Workshops include wood, metal, glass, bicycle, electrics, and ceramic , as well as ongoing initiatives to create gardens and renaturalize the forest, a wind turbine project , a wastewater treatment plant and solar thermal installation. Since 2002 Cofanis shamans from Colombia visited Kesselberg which resulted in the formation of a transnational "Indigenous Embassy".
