Theos’s first Stützrad-Aktion.
(Stützräder: Training wheels are an additional wheel or wheels mounted parallel to the rear wheel of a bicycle that assist learners until they have developed a usable sense of balance on the bicycle.)
As being a non-profit (diy) Collective, so far running mainly on donations, Theo tries to support some small projects with the little money coming in.
now it’s time again to pull out your Stützräder for:
Theo is selling some of his famous agendas
as a benefit for TheaterStraat
where? @De Nieuwe Anita/Amsterdam
when? tomorrow night
what happened to TheaterStraat?
During the blaze at “De Heining”, in the west-harbor area of Amsterdam, last Monday (December 2nd.) the warehouse of TheaterStraat burned down to the ground. TheaterStraat is well-known for their support during demonstrations and events with their iconic yellow-red stage truck, but also provides transportation with their coaches, logistical support and loads more.
The trucks and coaches are saved, but all the rest is gone (sound equipment, stage lighting, mixing desks, the tents, containers, tools, the ware-house, the office and so on and so forth…)
Because of the scale of the blaze (more than 12 companies are affected) it will take a long time before it will become clear if and what will be covered by the insurance company. In any case it will never cover all the losses!
For starters they need help with cleaning and sorting and we need to build them a new ware-house. For now (a lot of) money is needed.
Think back of all the numerous demonstrations, festivals and other occasions where TheaterStraat was involved and donate some money. Ask also your friends and family. Start organizing benefits, because Theaterstraat is paramount for the alternative scene in the Netherlands.
We always relied on TheaterStraat and this time around TheaterStraat needs us!
Donations can be made into the bank-account of TheaterStraat, number: 5010111 (please say in the comment “schenking”)
thanx for your attention!

our new agenda 2014 featured on awesome
Letterkabinet from Amsterdam
end of 2013
self-employed bookbinder and Theo collective member Thekla (Amsterdam) workin’ very hard on the new Theo agenda “Zwei Null Eins Vier”
a lot of cutting, glueing and sewing
last october we wrote in a Theo 2014 update:
if you order now, til 18th of october, you can reserve your copy & a special earlybird-silkscreened bag with a Theo collage on it [...]
in the meantime the early birds got their bags and agendas & for all the others:
some pictures of the silkscreening process and the drying on line (online? ….huh….just a homonym) afterwards
million thanks to Thekla for this wonderful silkscreening work!
zwei null eins vier—–we are almost here!!
ok, short update:
please be patient with me, this is the plan:
folks living in germoney: the agendas will be spread in the days between xmas and new years (all ppl around Hamburg: we let you know!). if it needs to be send: post goes out in the days after xmas
folks living far away (australia,portugal, usa, uk, switzerland… ja ja ja great, Theo is conquering the world), we are going to ship the agendas also after the xmas days, hope they will arrive quickly& without damage…!
lieve mense in belgie, you might be lucky, I try to send them out in the coming days!
en beste buren (ADM!), all peeps in Amsterdam….I am sorry to tell you that… but you might have to wait until the first week of january! But you can always come by and have a tea or coffee with me, bring me some chocolate or fruits and give me hands n arms n back a good massage….
(oh,perfect timing for saying thankyouuuuuuu: to all the Theo supporters (buying, advertising our project!), to the person donating 1 m³ (!!!) of wood, so the atelier is always (!!!) warm n cozy on the long workingdays (best donation ever…), to the drivers helping out with car&time, when the bicycle couldnt hold the masses of paper anymore, to my bookbinding collegue for sharing her space when big (oldschool) machinery was needed, to the friend bringing chocolate, cakes& cooking dinner to keep the energy flowing, to my personal secretary, my brother& inspiration Tho, to the chilean sun&smiles&energies, and to you, for all the happy words of all of you — DANKESCHÖÖÖÖÖNNNN!!!)
oh and: that I am not perfectly in time doesnt mean that I dont have energy anymore: tell your friends&family, there are still copies out on the market! and:
from today on, the Theo agenda Zwei Null Eins Vier is also availeble at these stores in Amsterdam:
Het Fort van Sjakoo
and at the GWA, Grafisch Werkcentrum Amsterdam
hiep hiep hoeraaaa!
Thekla— for Theo
dont you worry: everybody gets an invoice, so just wait with paying until all the details are in your mailbox!!
-- We are two, and together we are Theo. We walk, bike, jump and dance. We listen and we speak out. We travel and we are at home. We draw and paint and cut and glue and sew. We create. And we really like it. http://theobeam.wordpress.com/
