The Tostifabriek makes tosti's from scratch. They produce the ingredients with a selfmade grainfield, two pigs and two cows. The grain is sown, and a scarecrow chases all the brutal bantam away. In three weeks four animals will arrive. This week the Tosti team started building their stables and they need help. Do you know how to handle a screwdriver, are you free between 10:00 and 18:00? .
Participating is fun because you'll learn loads of new stuff. And because we like seeing you around we'll make you a honorary Mediamatic member for 4 weeks. This means free entrance to the Fabriek and massive discounts on our events.
Freezing Favela is a temporary city at Mediamatic Fabriek. The Fabriek is situated in the Van Gendthallen on Oostenburg, Amsterdam. The space is big, unheated, and the roof leaks. Designers, cooks and other makers have been given the possibility to claim part of this space as their own. They work autonomously from their workshop- or project space, but like in any other community, materials, space, and functions have to be shared. Favela citizens are making tosti's from scratch, paper from cow dung, furniture from cardboard, and food from our aquaponics farm. They give workshops, organize get-togethers, and serve food.
Location: Mediamatic Fabriek, VOC-kade 10-12, Oostenburg Amsterdam. We are open on Wednesdays and Sundays from 14:00 to 17:00. Entrance with a valid membership (€5,- for 4 weeks). Kids half price. We are also open at Eastern Monday.
