designing of a mobile rehearsal room in Essen
In 2008, Hamburg’s successful Jamliner project was adapted in the city of Essen. Here, the so-called Jamtruck provided interested young people the possibility of using its mobile rehearsal room with integrated recording studio. getting-up was responsible for the Jamtruck’s design.
The project was initiated by the Mercator foundation and the Folkwang Musikschule. Its aim was to connect young people with different social and cultural backgrounds through the power of music. With its visits to educational and non-educational institutions, the Jamtruck aims to promote creativity, musicality and people’s respect for one other.
The Jamtruck’s design was the work of the artistic collective getting-up, who were also responsible for the design of the Jamliners in Hamburg. They opted for a colorful design that reflected the versatile usage of the Jamtruck. The design featured characters portrayed as stepping out of the shadows through the power of music. The design’s curved lines symbolize motion – both the motion of the music and the motion of the truck.
