La Nave Nodriza Coworking is the only rural coworking space in the region of Extremadura, and one of the few existing in Spain. We combine the coworking's philosophy of collaboration and synergy with art, innovation, entrepreneurship and culture, offering a space for multidisciplinary creation.
After one year of trajectory, we can count among our coworkers pottery craftsmen, textile painting artists and professionals in the fields of programming, architecture, photography, video edition, special effects...
With your financial and informative help, we can set up our multi-use space and expand, in order for our commons-oriented proposals and activities to reach more people, whether in the surrounding rural environment or in other areas through online projects.
Description of the project. Main features, strengths and differentials.
Right now we have set up:
6 shared desktops, to which we expect to add 4 more.
3 box-workshops, with another one foreseen.
1 multidisciplinary space which still has to be remodeled: studio-set and multi-use room.
Coming soon, a conference room.
1 office-kitchen, still to be remodeled.
To sum up, right now we have a space which has already undergone an important remodeling, but which still needs the final kick to take off to new heights.
We deal with the management and organization of activities. We also work in positioning and creating physical networks (on a local, regional and national level), we coordinate digital networks and web content, we design and work on the development of our space, which we organize taking into account the coworking's needs.
We have already organized different exhibitions, shows and workshops... We run our own website, which we plan to improve, and we rely on social networks with hundreds of followers.
Why this is important
This space needs support for takeoff, though it is increasingly powerful and of higher quality.
It will allow to give more coverage to the interests of the rural world to launch, share, create, design ... Although we need to finish conditioning it. Now it works, but we need to isolate spaces and create new ones so that they can benefit more people in the project. Alone we were going fast ... but together we can go further. Will you help us?
If you want to be part of the coworking crew and take off with us, become a coworker and support us. We will have a spot for you when we are done. If you want to keep rural cooperative initiatives, synergy, social entrepreneurialism and response to cultural, social and artistic initiatives, support us and spread the message. You can also take one galactic voyage with us.
Goals of the crowdfunding campaign
With this crowdfunding campaign we will go to phase 1 of collective external funding, to minimally finish renovating our space and expand further.
• We intend to position ourselves on the map as a creative and reference coworking space.
• Further promote the cooperative work in the rural world through coworking; encouraging relations between professionals and creating community.
• Create workspaces, cooperation, connection and entrepreneurialism.
