Freezing Favela is a temporary city at Mediamatic Fabriek. The 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 been given the possibility to claim part of this space as their own. They work autonomously from their workshop- or project space, 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 dung, furniture from cardboard, and food from our aquaponics farm. They give workshops, organize get-togethers, and serve food. We are open at least every Wednesday and Sunday from 1pm to 6pm.
Location: Mediamatic Fabriek, VOC-kade 10, Oostenburg Amsterdam. Entrance is free if you help out, otherwise entrance with a valid membership (€5,- for 4 weeks). Kids half price.
