Membership

Do I need a member to visit the space?

No, everyone is welcome, f

How do I become a member?

We've got a pandora's box in the space, in that there are membership forms. Enter your details there.

You will need to find two sponsors, people which are already members. If you are a regular visitor and are nice to the other people, finding sponsors won't be an issue.

How much is the membership fee?

It's 20 euro, you are always welcome to give more. This price is dynamic and can go down in the future. There are no structural exceptions of pricing for students and pensioners. However if you really want to be a member but don't have any cash, come and talk to us. Remember yo u don't need to be a member to use the space.

What is the benefit of becoming a member?

The main benefit is you get a key and the space will always be open for you.

What will you do with the membership fee?

To cover all fixed costs we need 400€/month. Our income are drinks and membership fees.

We're working on a system to make the bookkeeping as transparent as possible for all members. Please get involved in making this happen. It's easy to bitch about money, but do it in a commission where you take responsibility. Our immediate financial goals are paying everything we owe people, and building a small warchest of 3 months costs. So we're covered if something goes wrong.
