ADM is the largest free space in Amsterdam. It is an arts squat which is iconic and important as a cultural beacon. They hold open days and festivals and invite support for ADM and the freedom to develop free cultural spaces worldwide and in the Netherlands.
It continues to fight for its very existence as big business and government fight to take over their Freeport space.
German/World Festivals like Fusion, astounding street art, street people and amazing spaces. Worlds less visited and known.
A useful hub site you can you use to discover and learn more about Berlin’s remarkably creative underbelly…it’s a business offering tours of the city…but a positive and dynamic one.

Lots of writings…..and links
On her site, it says:
“As a born-again Christian minister Annika Mongan was sent out to convert Pagans. But through years of traveling and studying she became alienated from fundamentalism and found a new home in Witchcraft. Today she celebrates being born again and again, a lifelong cycle of transformation.
Annika is the founder of an intentional Pagan community in California, an avid mushroom hunter and devotional musician.”
Multi-media shows featuring re-imagined military and industrial machinery. Think ‘War of the Worlds’.
Their site describes the festival and event performances as (IN CAPITALS !): “ARCADIA FUSE SCULPTURE, ARCHITECTURE, THEATRE, CIRCUS, ROBOTICS, ENGINEERING, LIGHTNING, MUSIC, AERIAL PERFORMANCE AND CUTTING EDGE TECHNOLOGY INTO A PRIMAL UNITY.”
French-originated, nomadic, anarchist alternative circus at its weird and wonderful best. An archive site for the group featuring links to some of the stunts and shows from the late 1980s and 1990s.
If you saw the show live, the memories of high-wire motor-cycles, juggling chainsaws, loud, loud music and explosions will live with you forever.
