Freezing Favela

Freezing Favela is a temporary city at Mediamatic Fabriek. The space 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, organize get-togethers, and serve food. We're open at least every Wednesday and Sunday from 2pm to 5pm.
