We are starting the development of a ‘goood’ project:
Welcome Patch Club!
Patch Club is a research and design strategy that aims to:
– Build a community integrating topics like: social interaction, (fashion)design, circular economy (reusing, repairing, upgrading), local initiatives & women entrepreneurship.
– Act as an accessible social design school, rising awareness, transferring knowledge and learning by doing.
– Impulse and develop enterprises in the social craft-production sector.
Last March we had an inspiring first research-workshop with our partners and friends Carmen Marcus and Rubia Oehlers from Cultuurhuis in Amsterdam Nieuw-West at the Coop Westside. Together with designers Beatriz Fernandez and Daniela Castelbranco, involved in the project, we got a better understanding of the women’s needs & the added value of our design approach for the potential local social enterprises.
More about this strategy will follow, hier or in the website of the foundation: Stay tuned!
