What is Nest Project//
Nest Project curates annual event to connect niche people to their niche spaces. We share regularly inspiring stories about #improvisational #guerrilla #temporary #informal #bottom-up #DIY projects on our facebook and twitter.
Why is Nest Project initiated//
Changfang Luo is the person behind Nest Project, who grew up in Taipei where spaces are highly mixed and efficiently used by start-up entrepreneurs. These are usually small ventures that seek for niche spaces, for example, taking a bookshelf space of an existing café or nesting in every possible urban space with a mobile stall. In Amsterdam, on the other hand, she observes a contradicting situation where many spaces are vacant but not available (& not affordable) for starter entrepreneurs.
Nest Project is initiated to facilitate spaces for small art & craft retailers, especially the individual artists, craftsmen & designers. This type of home-made products are usually online, but they do need networking spaces or affordable retail spaces to showcase and to promote their work.
How can you participate//
Our current focus is temporary/ alternative retail spaces, and we will share inspiring stories about people, business and spaces related to this subject. We welcome you to share local stories about temporary/ alternative retail spaces with us! You can email me, or share it on our facebook or twitter. We’ll be happy to hear your stories, comments and suggestions!
