2009 - ongoing
Over one month, working with the community a construction was built. It was rehearsal space that opens up as a small podium, and tuck-shop.
â€˜Within four weeks, a piece of leftover space is activated, for the local musicians to use as their platform.â€™ (Raw Foundation)
The aim was to utilise the space in between the government houses and build a prototype for community structures.
The place is still in use.
