A social and democratic living room for the city, in which inhabitants may take initiative with others to develop projects. Downstairs will include a bar available for meetings and encounters, whilst upstairs a residency / workplace for initiators. Despite the concept of the space not taking form as an open call, the space itself is open to all.
The residency will open as a pilot during October 2019. We will give a shout once the bar is ready and open for business.
The first residents / initiators are Eindhovenaren Theo van Rock and Wim Heere. Theo is known from Nasmak, an Eindhoven cultband from the 70’s-80’s and Wim is a renown writer and performer. Both gentlemen dive into the residence to lead Residence for the People into its first iteration, using the bar as the starting point for societal improvement.
Theo and Wim’s process will be followed, documented and shown at Onoamtopee projects. This being said, you can join in and see the actual results develop in the residence of the former parsonage (pastorie in Dutch) behind the Catharinakerk in the centre of Eindhoven.
