Slum Sessions#20

Planning the next happy Sunday

16 Apr 2013

We approached the 20th week of the Freezing Favela. A special time, and maybe a cultural breaking point for the city. This Tuesday we had a retrospect at our first Sunday event: Bird Sunday.

Freezing Favela

Freezing Favela was a temporary city at Mediamatic Fabriek. The space is big, unheated, and the roof leaks. Designers, cooks, and other makers had claimed part of this space as their own. In the Favela you could make tosti's from scratch, paper from cow dung, furniture from cardboard, and cook with ingredients from the aquaponics farm. Favela-citizens gave workshops and organized events and meals.
