Freezing Favela is a small city within Mediamatic Fabriek. Builders, cooks and other makers 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 tostis 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.
Location: Mediamatic Fabriek, VOC-kade 10-12, Oostenburg Amsterdam. We're open every Wednesday and Sunday afternoon from 14h till 17h. Entrance: free with membership (€5,- for 4 weeks). Children half price.
