All summer at O—Overgaden, artist and author Melanie Kitti is showing a solo exhibition of DIY fresco techniques on sculptural bulks created from plaster. At the same time, Kitti represents a remarkably caring and activist practice, and on her initiative, O—Overgaden, Trampolinhuset, and Sorg & Samfund magazine have now joined forces and invite you to an afternoon in the name of solidarity to raise money for Trampolinhuset.

Join us on Saturday 5 August, 2–7pm, for readings from both established and rising poets, acrobatics and magic shows, and the launch of new merch and fashion pieces created by those who enjoy Trampolinhuset as a social place to meet across different languages.
