  • Description

    Description

    I'm a software developer with a design background, and I also studied arts and I do them when I have time. I have so eclectic range of interests, and I like to build stuff, from software to furniture, from apps to planting gardens. I love to fail, and fail again.

    I do capoeira, contact improvisations, and some other contemporary dancing too. I sometimes hold workshops as well.

    I just started living in this fantastic garden with five small cottages and want to turn this place into an artist run space hosting residencies, workshops, artistic activities and such.

    Hi!

    In this part of my life, I'm up to so many things, and they are all nice and interesting stuff, such as forming an arts collective, running a digital platform for book-lending and reading circles, creating digital tools for dedicated for local engagement, and initiating a non-profit for immigrant workers all over Europe to exchange information, lobby to bring legislative effect, and help each other with practicals...

    I happened to land in this wonderful garden with a lot of plants, flowers, fruits, large kitchen part of which will become a performance venue, and five small cottages... There's a lot of cleaning, organising, planting, watering, gardening, building work that will be fun and empowering! Oh, not to forget: A dance/yoga space as well as a film/sound studio is yet to be built.

    Then I make some wonderful kombucha as well! ^^

    IMPORTANT NOTE: This is my home and due to a bunch of sensitive reasons, I would like that there's no photos/videos taken in this place. If you have a strong desire to do so and have a concept in mind, you can request so with an intention letter and that you will then be even assisted for your art project. This place is not intended to become a commodity to feed anyones instagram profile.

    If you want to learn and do either of these, you're so welcome. Yes, the order indicates priority of what I need:

    1. Cleanup around the space, organise, water plants etc. Then cooking
    2. Build and move around stuff/furniture/dance-floor
    3. Help me organise gatherings, trainings, events, build a community together.
    4. Build furniture for real needs
    5. Web design, marketing & development. Don't be afraid. I'll guide you through.

    The place is in Faralya, which is probably one of the most fascinating sea-side villages in the world. Only 10-15 mins walk down through the forest, you get to a crisp and clean water and can enjoy the mediterranean waters. The area is quite touristic, which can be an advantage if you're a person who likes to teach yoga or give any kind of workshop and earn some cash.
