About


The Space is a place of experimentation and research. Six months ago, 10 people from different backgrounds and unknown to each other,  got casually together to fix an old, anti-squat apartment within the artist community “IJzerblok”. Two months after, the apartment was already a “commons” shared by the neighborhood, artists, university students and other creative Rotterdammers. In its rooms and inner garden, people got together to investigate concepts like open-source management, alternative community and business design and to create and test open-source/co-created tools for collaboration and digital innovation. 

In only six months, The Space saw the inception of the following initiatives and cultural products: “Stories Rotterdam”, “Art nights” by the talented Maria Fraaije, the “Subsidies Workshop”  by Emma Laurens, the research project of the immersive theater company “Meander”, the development of a play about Rotterdam’s gentrification by “De Trasmissie” and the co-creation of the hyper-local network “Coolhaven Connect” to connect creative people and organizations on Coolhaveneiland. More has been done and more is happening in our rooms.
