More than 20 makers, startups and designers will win a space to produce culture and innovation @FuoriSalone for €8 /m2. [re]vive is a 4 days happening transforming an unused building into a productive space of culture and making.

[re]vive call 4 ideas invites makers, creatives and startups to describe and display the spreading of the productive and creative phenomena that lighten up Milan like Barcelona, Berlin, NY or… Palermo! Pioneers of the DIY and of the p2p, practitioners of social innovation and sustainability, inventors, designers, developers, technological artists, sound designers, photographers, prototypers, craftsmen and theoreticians in search a public: you all are the actors that we are looking for, from April 11 to 14, to give birth to our idea of the contemporary library [re]vive!

[re]vive is a source of opportunities.

It is the opportunity to display for an affordable price in a space at the core of the Fuori Salone at the Milan Design Week 2013.

It’s the opportunity to collectively revive an unused but splendid building.

It’s the opportunity to testify uses and practices that can concretely become a part of the urban and social agenda of the city of Milan.

It’s the opportunity to test a desirable form of the contemporary library: instead of just being an access to knowledge, the space will become the stage for the creative production, networking and innovation.

But above all… it’s your opportunity.

During the Week of the Fuori Salone del Mobile of Milano 2013 [im]possible living has been granted an unused space by the Council of Zone 6. The [im]possible Living purpose to reactivate and open it to the citizens and creative people from all over the world: The Ex Furnace, a wonderful space in Alzaia Naviglio Pavese 16, in the Navigli district in Milan. The building has been formally turned into a library but it has been unused for years and will be opening its doors to the public for the first time. Since the event is self sustaining, [im]possible living asks anyone who wants to exhibit inside of the ex furnace the symbolic fee of €8 per square meters…per day!

Carefully follow the instructions you can find in the call, describe your idea and upload the required material on the site of [im]possible living before March 25th 12.00 (UTC+01:00). From the moment of the upload until the closing of the call people can vote for your idea on the website: the finalists will be choosen from the ideas with the most votes. More than 20 of them will be installed inside of the space of the Ex Furnace for a 4 days happening.

Keep in mind that the sooner you upload your idea, the more time you have to get publicity for the online voting. This will give you more chances to be one of the winners. But note that the eligibility of your idea is not only based on the number of likes on the website: though this aspect can give an important value, it will be depending on the final decision of the jury.

[re]vive is a call open to everyone: from students to freelancers, from cultural organisations to young companies of any nationality. Carefully read the conditions of the participation for all the details.
