Freezing Favela

A temporary city at Mediamatic Fabriek

Mediamatic 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 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, Saturday and Sunday from 1pm to 6pm.

Freezing Favela is made possible by the Creative Industries Fund NL, the municipality of Amsterdam and Stadgenoot.
