FOSTERING A POSITIVE EUROPEAN SPIRIT

MOSAIK realizes creative projects to make you feel Europe’s diversity

ABOUT

ABOUT

MOSAIK creates projects and products in order to foster a positive European spirit. It is one of MOSAIK’s core principles to connect stakeholders from diverse fields and disciplines and by that create new synergies. We therefore work in cooperation with governments, European institutions, associations, NGOs, social businesses or the private sector.

At the core of all of MOSAIKs projects are three elements:

BRAIN = VISION

MOSAIK focuses on high quality content that portrays the idea of a positive European diversity.

HEART = EMOTIONS

MOSAIK does not teach and preach, but enable experiences that touch people on a personal, emotional level.

BELLY = HUMOUR

MOSAIK creates unexpected connections between diverse fields and creates outcomes that will surprise and make you laugh and wonder.

MOSAIK was founded in 2015 by Katharina Moser. A European at heart, she worked for the Austrian Foreign Ministry, the British Council London or the European Forum Alpbach whilst pursuing her own European projects at the side.  

MOSAIK is the result of a long lasting urge to pass on the enrichening and inspiring idea that Europe has become to her.

"MY EUROPE IS NOT AN IDEA
IT IS A LIVING EXPERIENCE."
VISION

VISION

Katharina Moser, Founder of MOSAIK

“What do I even mean when I talk about Europe? Is it the European Union? Is it the Eurozone? Is it the European integration process, common values we share or a blue flag with yellow stars?

Well, yes, they are of course part of the underlying basis, but all these things aren’t what gets me excited.

My Europe is not an idea, it is a living experience that started when I was 18, living in a flatshare in Madrid with eight people from seven different countries and experienced “Europeanness” first hand. Europe, to me, has always been about the differences: how other people, cultures and countries have broadened my horizon by being different to what I had been accustomed to.

I believe that our European identity does not have to consist of us being the same or feeling the same, but of our willingness and our ability to deal with the fact that we are different.

I believe that only when we are curious, eager to learn about each other and willing to create empathy, can we form a solid basis for cooperation that in the end exceeds the personal realm and works on a political and economic level as well.

This is why I feel my life being enriched by having this additional layer which we might just call: a European identity.

Who, if not us?

Empower young Europeans

A booklet written by 12 young Europeans in order to inspire others. 6000 samples are being distributed and passed on all over Europe.

The booklet “Who if not us” has been written by 12 young Europeans, also called The Young European Collective, which Katharina Moser, founder of MOSAIK, is part of.

In this “four Step Guide to Empower Europe and Our Generation” the group shares very personal experiences and stories on how to be critical, overcome fears, discover your own power and group up.

By that they want to show ways to overcome the challenges the “Generation Y” faces in Europe, both in personal and professional environments, and inspire young people to become positive changemakers in their lives and the lives of others.

“Who, if not us?” is financed by Stiftung Mercator

#wallpaperforrefugees

Words for a new start

A collection of positive, inspiring and ‘typical Austrian’ words will be turned into illustrated posters and brought to refugees’ homes.

The project #wallpaperforrefugees aims to collect words for refugees that help and inspire them throughout their new start in Austria. “Kipferl” “Bussi” or “Freundschaft” are just a few examples of this vocabulary that has been collected from Austrians.
Everyone could contribute important, humorous, meaningful or simply typical Austrian words that can spark conversations between refugees and Austrians.

These words are being illustrated with the support of almost hundred designers. They are then then put together on posters that also show translations of the words into German, Arabic and Farsi.
The printed posters will be distributed amongst refugee homes all over Austria.

Route 28

The Europe-trip in the middle of Vienna


The prototype version of Route 28 took place in April 2016. 200 participants experienced 5 countries in 5 stations in the centre of Vienna: Great Britain, Poland, Romania, Spain and Sweden. We cooked Polish pierogi, listened to British comedy in a pub or a Spanish singer songwriter in an apartment. 

2017 we will set up the full version of Route 28 and set up +/- 20 stations all over the city of Vienna. We invite all citizens to take part in this free, public event and experience traces of Europe, right where we are.

Route 28 doesn’t have a political goal, but a social one. In a Europe of such diversity, it becomes crucial to deal with differences in a constructive way. Only if we get to know each other, can we overcome our stereotypes and grow understanding. Only if we create a positive feeling for a common Europe, will we be able to deal with the challenges we are facing all together.

We think European. 2017 Route 28 will take place in Vienna. In the future it shall expand as a best-practice-project to other European capitals as well.

COME ON OVER

The fun card game COME ON OVER! (KOMM ZU MIR!)
brings the Erasmus-feeling home to you!  

COME ON OVER! is a quirky storytelling game that makes Europe a topic everyone can relate to. Including more than a hundred surprising facts about the 28 EU countries and thousands of possibilities to create fun stories around them, COME ON OVER! triggers a positive, humorous and personal exchange on European countries and the ideas we have of them.
By that, it serves as a communication tool for institutions and organisations dealing with the topic of Europe as much as an entertaining game for your family and friends, telling you where single people are sprinkled with pepper, ferrets stuffed down people’s pants and instruments whittled from vegetables.

The game was developed together with the French games publisher The Right to Lose and is currently organised and distributed by MOSAIK in Vienna, Austria.
COME ON OVER has been sold 15.000 times in its initial year and is currently available in German, English and French.
Further translations into more European languages are in the making.
Single pieces can be purchased through the webshop, for higher quantities contact us directly.
