During the last summer edition of #workpartyclub we shared a working session with people from Ireland, Armenia, Morocco, Ourense, Santiago, Mourente and obviously Bueu because this time our hosts were the cofounders of Argo Navis, a coworking space in the center of this village. It was a really inspiring day. We discovered a new creative space and new Galician and international companies.
Firstly, we introduced ourselves trough our name and a picture that represented a project or initiative we were developing at the moment.
Then, Maria, our host, organized a trip for us. She shared the history of the place. How they recycled the materials, how they rebuilt it with their own hands (not all the space, but mainly all), how hey are organized as a cooperative and how this network has helped them to develop new projects and create professional opportunities.
During the second break, we focused in sharing some companies or projects that were inspiring for each of us.
This way we discovered, among others, these amazing initiatives:
We discovered 2 Galician projects thanks to Nacho from Ticket2europe. One El Solitario mc , from the depths of the Galician forests, this company has been challenging the status quo since its birth in 2010. El Solitario is the vanguard of the new global motorcycle movement that is combining motorcycles, art, clothing and cultural events.
Then we discovered Ddue. They design garments near the sea, surrounded by nature. An exceptional setting in a small town in the Arousa Estuary, on Spain’s Atlantic coast.
Michelle, from Ireland talked to us about Social Entrepreneurs from Ireland. This public initiative supports high-potential social entrepreneurs to tackle Ireland’s social problems.
We also discovered another Galician brand thanks to her cofounder Marta from Ourense. She shared with us www.smartbites.net
These were just some of the inspiration tips we got from yesterday 🙂
After the working session we had lunch together in the beach.
Because working, inspiring and enjoying can be the same thing. We are willing for the next one 🙂
