Are you last-minute looking for a place to come and work? You are welcome at De Koer - We are especially looking for HelpX'ers from the end of August untill September 11th. People with experience or interest in woodwork are especially welcome ;).

Plans -
We will be building a wall for a small community cinema, a wall in the big theatre hall as a temporary construction during renovations, building a rooftop outside, continue the work at the wood fired oven.

We are a small non-profit organisation at the start of a big restoration/ reconstruction of a community building as a place for artistic and social creation and encounter. The building used to be a community building but got degraded the last decennia. We negotiated a ground lease for the coming 35 years with the owners.

Our intention is to redevelop the place slowly - creating the plans together with the users and the neighborhood and also doing the construction-work together with many volunteers. The last three years we worked in two empty factory buildings and used the space together with different collectives. There was a community bar, an artist collective, a bicycle repair kitchen, a give-away shop…

We pick up this dynamic and set up a place that now has a more sustainable caractere. No more moving!

Since one year we have started and it has been a roalercoaster of collective workdays, small or bigger events, collective kitchen moments, building an oven, a garden, a watertower and so on. On the koer you are welcomed within a community of volunteers - though we do look for people that are able to work independently.

This summer of 2017 we are building for three months!
We plan a many building days with groups of volunteers this summer from july untill September and can host some HelpX people those days.

There's an appartment and food in the kitchen.
