Help us renovate our space!

The Exchange

After a great campaign with which we raised 25.000 € to install a fireproof ceiling, we now need to actually install it. A company is going to do most of the work. We are looking for people to assist. Our non-profit vegan pizzeria is otherwise a lively place that hosts events (please watch our campaign video), and we are planning to also continue with some of these events (in a second space we control). We are looking for experienced renovators.

Program Details

We will organize together for when what things have to happen according to skill and the time frame of the workers. You have to be flexible because it's possible that the workers start later than scheduled or that there are gaps. In the gaps, we will work on improving the furniture, repair things, maybe tile or paint the kitchen - or we'll host events to generate some income. We're looking for people who have experience renovating and repairing things but who can also be flexible and help with the organisation of events (concerts etc.).
About 10 people live in the house at at time. We share meals and chores, spend free time with each other and organise events in the house. The house is very lively, lots of things are going on all the time.


Activities & Shift

The renovations will be carried out by a company, but we can help in order to reduce the costs. We will remove the old ceiling, move furniture around that is in the way, protect the floor with sheets, and clean up after the workers. We will also most likely have to paint the walls after construction and re-install the furniture etc. During the renovations, we still want to host a couple of the events we normally host, possibly still using the kitchen when possible.


Rules

We expect from volunteers to fully integrate and contribute to chores - cleaning up after oneself is really important in order to keep the house harmony ;-)
No smoking in the house. No pets.
