One for the climbing enthusiasts! We head to local, Neukölln gym Bouldergarten on Saturday, February 17th, for a day centered around bouldering and making the sport more accessible.

First, there will be a free-to-attend, beginners bouldering workshop with two mentors teaching the basics over a 90-minute session (16:00–17:30). Applications are now open via the form below. Participants will also have food and drink courtesy of Patagonia.

Following the session, we move to the gym’s upstairs room for a Germany premiere of Patagonia’s new film, What The Hands Do, which tells the story of two Mexican activists who use climbing to empower their community (18:15–19:00). Mariana Mendoza Castillo and Miguel Casar ask the questions: "how can we use climbing to shape the world we want to see?".

What The Hands Do is directed by Bing Liu - watch the trailer here. This part of the day is open-to-all and free entry.

To end the evening, Refuge Worldwide DJs will take to the decks and soundtrack the final hours of the gym session (19:00-21:00).
