Toestand: Docu – ‘To Tetovo’
Last summer Toestand left for Tetovo, a city in the north-west of Macedonia. Over there we turned an abandoned radiostation into a social-cultural center and transformed a vacant bus station into a skate park. Margo of Toestand captured this experience and edited it into a documentary that is now online. We friendly invite you to sit down in your lazy chair and find out what we did last summer! Curious about our next international project? Keep an eye on the Facebook group: Tirana Social Centre or on Instagram: @scs.tirana and discover our plans for Tirana, Albania.
Toestand: SAVE THE DATE!
During the last week of September we’d like to welcome you all at our free festival to reflect on what it’s like to be a woman nowadays. Together with a group of enthusiastic woman we’ve been working on this festival for a long time. We shared our experiences and started an ongoing dialogue. The program is still developing but the date has been set. So don’t forget to mark it in your agenda! See you in September!
Toestand: Tirana, here we come!
On the 5th of July Toestand is leaving for Tirana (Albania) together with about forty volunteers. This year a gigantic abandoned tractor factory called “Uzina Autotraktoreve” will be given a new life. Not only volunteers from Tirana, but also friends made during previous international projects like Termokiss (Kosovo) and Social Cultural Space Tetova (Macedonia) will join forces. To stay up to date please follow scs.tirana on Intsagram or keep an eye on our Facebookpage
In Limbo: Job offer!
The previous vacancy is not yet filled and yet we already have a new one to share! This time we’re looking for a data wizard with special interests in local currencies, someone who likes to collect data and knows how to analyse it. Does this description sound like you? Or someone you know? Make your move and apply now!
In Limbo is the name of Toestands’ brand new project that will open its doors in September! Actually ‘In Limbo’ already exists. But because we were planning to launch a similar project we decided to join forces and bring everything together. The main concept? To store recovered material in a structural way and make it available to all kinds of socio-cultural organisations. This way not only buildings but also material is given a useful second life!
Marie Moskou: MOSKO KOLA is open!
From today on, you’ll be able to find some refreshment in our temporary, non-commercial summer bar called ‘Mosko Kola’. We’re serving homemade non-alcoholic lemonades, juices, tisanes, kefir and kombuchas at very fair prices. We’re open on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday afternoon. Hope to see you soon!
