The Element Key Weekend

🎶 🎨 💃 ✍️ Friday and Saturday are for jamming: the Element Jam.

Everyone is welcome to join, whether or not you already have jamming experience. It’s a very nice way to dive into the world of jamming, so just pass by. The Jams are held in German and English.

A short description of the Element Jam:

Imagine a group that merges all art forms—structured yet improvised! “The Element Key” is a jamming method, with a conductor guiding the group, combining creativity in various forms. Using five hand gestures representing Earth, Water, Fire, Air, and Space to guid the creative process.

“The Element Key,” is a method to bring together and play with our unique qualities. This artistic approach delves into fostering human connection through shared strong focus in creative expressions.

🌈 Sunday is for preparing and having a performance in the evening.

We are gathering a team of the best conductors/musicians/dancers/artists.

The weekend will be led by the founder of The Element Key Benjamin Jamily, experienced facilitator Julian and other upcoming facilitators. These Jams are also part of a facilitator training program.

🌟 A detailed plan of the weekend can be found at the end of this article.

💖 To help us planning please fill in the form in advance to the event in case you want to participate:


If you have any questions, please contact us via julian.m.gritsch@gmail.com

If you are more of a spontaneous person: that’s also fine with us, you can for sure participate on Friday and Saturday. Just drop in.

💡 But nevertheless, it is very important that you show up for each Element Jam before it starts. The arriving times are indicated in the following timetable by “Arriving for the jam and socializing”. Once a session starts you can not enter for the particular session, this is necessary to get to know all the participants of the jam, their skills and also to create an undisturbed group process.

🎁 The whole event is donation based. We recommend per Jam 5€/10€/15€ (low/medium/high income) and if you can’t afford it, come anyway we are happy to welcome you.

🍲 On Saturday between 13:00-14:30 we will have a shared lunch break with a bring along buffet. Therefore it would be nice if everyone of you could bring a vegetarian or vegan dish to share, please bring also your own plates and cutlery.

📨 If you have any questions in advance or you are not sure whether the weekend is something for you just drop us a message and we will figure it out.

Share it with all your friends and jamily.

We are looking forward to this weekend full of creative exploration.
