Our “fourth fellow” in de Indische Buurt! Besma Software Developer PhD Candidate t Mom, living in Balistraa
Communities in Indische Buurt Timorplein Makassarplein MeevaartAmsterdam Muiderpoort station Ambonplein 22.000 inhabitants Four active community clusters 50 community builders 200 initiatives
Oost: Social AccomodationsWhat people need in the neighborhood?
Interview residents & entrepreneurs• Interviewed a number people living in Indische Buurt• Capture their experience about initiating or participating in neighborhood activities
Using Meevaart “people living in Balistraat asking me what’s going in in de Meevaart” Tim, living on Balistraat “(I came to the building because) I thought there is a cooking activity in every Friday evening. But it isnt. Staff could not give me clear information” - Heny, living on Javastraat “I used to give a Yoga class at the building, however I could not get enough participants in every session”
Social dynamics “… Young Atelier uses different kinds of spaces, Meevaart, Badhius, Dynamo ect…” “I have been searching space for my project where people can cook, and turn recycling into useful products” “there are many accommodations in the neighborhood and there is nobody who has a complete overview” “Citizens feel the need for more transparency about using space”
Current booking practice: flyers + calendar• Flyers in main lobby• Weekly room schedule posted on the board (static)
Current booking practice: back-end Channels for booking request: 2-30% call to Nooshi then she ask sending an email 60% via emails 20 % people come up to the office and ask in person 5% use google forms Who is involved? many staff and volunteers are involved in the booking process.
Iterative approach 1 2 3 4• Prioritize the most necessary functionality• Neighbors and Meevaart can both use the public calendar• Derive directories of rooms, people, activities
Discussions1. How to motivate and encourage initiatives and organisations managing accommodations to use our web tool? 2. How can we make most use of data derived from the app? (e.g. directory of users, space, initiatives, events)3. How to smoothly hand over this project from Code for Europe to Indische Buurt?
