Nave nº1839 is a cultural asociation whose headquarter is defined as a community center: a space created and managed by an informal community, non-profit, and destined to stimulate the social and cultural fabric. Its particular objectives gravitate towards promoting an active and creative leisure, serving as a basis to the community’s learning and developement, supplying resources to nourish the community’s interests, and to nourish the social fabric of the territory where it’s integrated. Its vocation is to host and organize events of diverse natures (workshops, talks, screenings, etc) – and its activity area is delimited by its material and human resources.
It’s self-managed, since it defines its own objectives and interests, and manages its own resources autonomously, withouth dependence from external capitals or powers (sponsors, public grants). It’s not squatted, but rented in a conventional market way. Nave 1839 is 100% financed and sustained by the voluntary contributions of its members, either under work or money form.
It’s also a non-profit project. None of its members, positions nor colaborators receives any kind of economic compensation in return for her/his work. If any economic surplus ever happens, it will exclusively invested in the bettering and widening of its activities and resources, or other uses according to its objectives (such as a solidarity kitty or money pool for other projects).
The people who built and ran the “Casa Tomada”, who conducted this space for two years, are the ones who laid the basis for all this and much more to be possible.
