Social Sofa project op Spottersplek
Now that the sun is shining and more is slowly possible again due to gradual lifting of covid restrictions, Halderberge is slowly starting up again. People go out for cycling and walking. One of the places in Halderberge where you can relax is the spotter’s place at Breda International Airport.
By initiative of Breda International Airport, this location will be developed in the coming months into a wonderful meeting place for spotters, cyclists, walkers and motorcyclists. Thanks to a contribution from the Economic Dome Halderberge and Visit Halderberge, a meeting place with social sofas and a social wall is being created here.
This community art project is designed in a competition with artisits of Halderberge and the surrounding area. The Social Sofa is a project to get to know the neighborhood and its surroundings and to improve the quality of life by covering sofas together with mosaic stones. There are banks all over the world based on this Tilburg idea.
CALL: designers and creatives wanted!
There is no better time to start this initiative. The corona crisis is coming to an end and we long for contact and togetherness. Halderberg artists are asked to make designs for the wall, sofa and stools. Are you creative and do you want to see your design immortalized at the spotter’s spot? You can submit your designs until April 28th. Or do you prefer mosaics on the wall? We are looking for residents and neighbors who would like to contribute to this special project together with others.
Take a look at the Facebook page of Social Sofa Halderberge for more information about the designs, submitting designs and to register as a volunteer for the mosaics.
