EN:The Neighourhood Furniture Factory

The Neighbourhood Furniture Factory is a workplace which provides opportunities, support and guidance for volunteers in a stress free working environment.

The Neighbourhood Furniture Factory designs and makes furniture with volunteers and designers. We work with (unemployed) volunteers, recent design graduates and enthusiastic pensioners. Our primary goal is to give space and guidance to the volunteers so that they can grow in their skills and interests while providing a reduced cost service, in the form of well designed furniture production, for social initiatives within the locality.

Agents of Change

With The Umbrella Network we started this project in 2015, supported by the Van Abbe Museum and The Art of Impact.

Agents of Change is a research into the social initiatives in Eindhoven, and how they could all be connected. We are creating a network for all the people involved, with the goal of the connections leading to more awesome neighborhood projects.

As a tool for gathering data and input for the network, in 2015-2016 we are organizing 5 different bus-tours throughout Eindhoven. In these bus-tours we visit three social initiatives in a specific neighborhood, all locations get the time to present themselves. After visiting the three locations we end with a nice lunch in a special place in the area. The passengers on the tours are changing every time, we have room for 8 persons.

A nice article about Tour#2 is found on MUD

In this project I am part of the core team, researching, designing and organizing. Besides that I am the guide and driver on the tours.

Two Hats

Ron Krielen spent five years driving a taxi for elderly and handicapped people.

En route, he would talk to them, ask questions and get to know them and their individual problems.

He realised that this personal contact gave him a better insight into possible solutions than many of the healthcare providers actually allocated to each case.

It sparked an idea – why not banish the bureaucracy faced by many of his passengers, and get them in the car with the very people empowered to help them?

A taxi ride would become a mobile meeting room: instead of just getting people from A to B, it could let them move on with their lives.

As a case study Ron presented Merlijn, a physically handicapped young man, 19 years old, who he met in a one hour ride back to his house.

This very positive guy told Ron that already for 5 years he had been in this same electric wheelchair, and of course he grew, and the chair didn't. Taking painkillers to be able to sleep because of not having a proper wheelchair, this cannot happen, can it?

By giving him a voice through a personal video Ron made of him and his family, they reached that the organizations involved agreed on his new wheelchair, and a big bonus: just by seeing him in person instead of on paper, they avoided putting him in a level 0 home with mentally disabled people, instead they scaled him up to a place with people he can talk to, since talking is his strength.

So he met a driver wearing two hats, one of them being the hat of a filmmaker.
