Hello and thanks for taking the time to read about my plan. I am Kalliopi and I need your help in creating a social space in Athens, offering a variety of products, mainly from small producers or cooperatives, while there will also be an art workshop that will host arts, environmental and cooperative education courses. Social activities for vulnerable groups will also be provided.
I would really like the space to grow over time, and allow more artists to come and explore their imagination and creativity. My vision is CoUtopia to become an open and common place for communication, creative expression, and collaboration between different people, and it’s about evolving into a worker cooperative, and developing work and social networks, creating new jobs, providing vulnerable groups with better living conditions. and integrating them into social and economic life for their self-sufficiency and independence. My future plans are to create a playground, reading room, and space for physical activity.
I really want you to know how important your support is, and to express my gratitude for helping me get this mission started. Because I have been unemployed for a long time, I know how difficult it is for other people in difficulty to do the things they love, and I would like to create, in turn, conditions and opportunities for growth and development for others. For people like us, finding start-up capital is the most difficult part, as we have to secure the space and costs to set up. That is why I am starting this project and asking for your help. The money raised will be used for setting up costs and initial rent for home use.
Where will the money go if the project is not funded 100%
* If not all the money is raised, what will be raised will remain in community's common fund and will be used when the needed amount is raised.
* If more money is raised, they will be used for equipment.
If you would like more information, we would be happy to contact us.
