There are parties, and there are parties. We organized a party that blends both of these categories. Food, drinks, music, lights, good people, and laughter are generally good party ingredients. We were taking those ingredients and adding: an abandoned factory, a 30ft. t-shirt, paint, brushes, felt tip pens, and your tipsy creativity (creatipsity).
The party started at 8pm till 1am. Location: Mediamatic Fabriek, VOC-kade 10, Oostenburg Amsterdam. The party costs were € 7.50, which included a valid Club Mediamatic membership (€5,- for 4 weeks).
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, bricks from old newspapers, furniture from cardboard, and prepare food with ingredients from the aquaponics farm. Favela-citizens gave workshops and organized events and meals.
