Freezing Favela

Freezing Favela is a temporary city at Mediamatic Fabriek. 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, bricks from old newspapers, furniture from cardboard, and cook with ingredients from the aquaponics farm. Favela-citizens give workshops and organize events and meals. We're open every Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday from 2pm to 5pm at the very least.
