Thanks to patrons, farmers, neighbors and volunteers, the Tostifabriek is running at full speed. The first tosti's will be harvested in September. Until that time we'll be taking care of the animals, showing people around, and making cheese. For now, it's time to celebrate. Join us for the official opening at 15:30, followed by a tour and a barbecue. Favelous will serve pizza from a wood-fired oven, and Roest is also throwing a little party. Please RSVP to let us know you're coming.
The Tostifabriek is part of Freezing Favela, a temporary city in and around Mediamatic Fabriek, VOC-kade 10, Oostenburg Amsterdam.
Mediamatic Fabriek is big, unheated, and the roof leaks. Designers, cooks, and other makers have claimed part of this space as their own. In the Favela you can make tosti's from scratch, paper from cow dung, furniture from cardboard, and cook with ingredients from the aquaponics farm. Favela-citizens give workshops and organize events and meals. We're open every Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday from 1pm to 6pm at the very least. Do you have an interesting idea for Freezing Favela and are you looking for a space to work, meet, collect, cook or present? Send us an e-mail.
