Slum Sessions #6

An informal gathering for new Freezing Favela teams to warm up

8 Jan 2013

This meet and greet was a sub-session for those who need a space to have a drink while discussing the future of the favela.


Freezing Favela Maquette - Proposals for our Freezing Favela were place inside our maquette of the Mediamatic Fabriek during Slum Sessions #5 . Lotte van Zuijlen

Participants attended this session to speak with potential collaborators or nuisances to a particular proposal. How can we work together or how can we stay far away from each other are the types of questions that were addressed. The more informal meets are not mandatory but very recommended to all citizens.

Freezing Favela

Freezing Favela is a small city within Mediamatic Fabriek. Builders, cooks and other makes have been given the possibility to claim a part of the big industrial hall as their own. They work on their projects autonomously, 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 shit, furniture from cardboard, and food from our very own aquaponics farm. And everyone is welcome to contribute. Build this city with us.
