Participating is fun because you'll learn loads of new stuff. And because we like seeing you around we'll make you an honorary Mediamatic member for 4 weeks. This means free entrance to the Fabriek and massive discounts on our events.

Freezing Favela

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.
