El taller de Timo en la Casa Biciteka

La Casa Biciteka por fin se inauguró en el centro de la ciudad, en un edificio antiguo del que ya contaba en otro post hace un par de semanas.

Su primera actividad fue uan fiesta el sábado pasado, a la que no pude asistir, pero esta semana comenzó un taller para construir estas megabicics o bicis altas -personalmente no me gustan, me parecen peligrosas, pero entiendo que para teatro y performance funcionan de maravilla.

Aquí dejo el carte invitación, por si las dudas, así como una imagen de quien está dando el taller y la dirección de su blog.

THE TOOL COLLECTION IS GROWING
JULY 24th will begin my work with the CASA BICITEKA, of Centro Historico, D.F., Mexico City. I will be with these kids for a month, building bicycles, making art, and having fun! My L.A. homie Rafa Esparza will be meeting me down there, as I will have been there since june 18th working with an archaeology project.
CASA BICITEKA www.bicitekas.org is a brand new bicycle co-operative and community bike workshop opening in June. The CASA is a non profit organization that helps teach riders how to maintain and fix there bicycles, while building bikes for those less fortunate ones! They have a new program/residency for artists and social workers who wish to go down and help. If anyone is interested shoot me an email and ill get you the info asap.
We will be helping them open shop, and assist them in building a tool and bicycle collection as it becomes available to us. We are currently searching any bike lovers, organizations, bike shops, anyone who wants to help. WE NEED TOOLS. Rafa and I will be collecting tools here in LA, I have written a proposal to a grant organization in order to help pay for the shipping. We have friends collecting tools in Los Angeles, Kansas City and Tulsa OK! Any tools that you do not need and think might help probably will. You can call me at 918 633 9444, or email timofahler@gmail.com , If you don’t think that you can help, but know someone who can, send them a link or an email, every bit of help counts!!!
