Boiling Room is a (mainly) Berlin based project, initiated by Maru Mushtrieva, Dimitri van Wittenboer, Emilia Kurylowicz and Liudmila Savelyeva that creates a shared space of collectivity through communal cooking. The project has been initiated to support people from and in war regions. During the cooking, we run a livetream with images from the kitchen, artistic intervention, interviews, and music/dj sets. With our content, we aim to address relevant topics of current global conflict. The live stream serves us to raise donations for independent initiatives of people in Ukraine, working on the borders and all across Europe to help those in need. After every cooking session, we have a collective meal together with all participants and anyone who wants to join. We see the cooking sessions as a moment of collectivity where people who have arrived in Berlin from war regions can gather together with locals to exchange contacts and build relationships in a homely atmosphere.
Boiling Room is a self-organised voluntary project that is run collectively by a group from various backgrounds and professions.
