A Space Where Design Can Happen

After a successful pilot we are setting up a design office to reach more people: refugees and the local Greek community. We have found a great, easily accessible space to work from in central Mytilene, which we are transforming into a makers hub. We also host complementary educational programs in computer literacy and language run by refugees themselves.

But we need your support!

We work with people who have a background in design or a an aspiration to learn new skills in a design related field and collectively devise projects that are relevant to them and their interests.

Education and livelihood development through skills-sharing and project based training gives a sense of purpose and of progression, and is essential to promoting mental well-being. Participants will build a portfolio to exhibit their abilities, learn new skills, re-establish routine, and improve their network.

Our projects aim to promote social cohesion or integration in some way and contribute to the local context of Lesvos.

Please help us make a space where design can happen!

€10,000 would cover our basic expenses for one year so we can focus on the people we work with and the projects that matter to them.

We need funds for:
-Office running costs (rent/ electricity/ water/ wifi etc: approx. €500 p/month)
-Materials for self-made furniture + shelving (€300)
-Equipment such as carpentry tools (€500)
-Two laptops with design software (€2000)
-Basic supplies for us to design, film, make + print (€1,200)
