Thank you for your interest in organising an event or an activity at the Citizen Corner.

The Citizen Corner is a common that we manage together to enable citizens to meet, share, learn and co-create.

While we are not for profit, there are costs such as insurances, heating, utilities, Internet, etc that need to be covered. We also need to pay a bit of rent to the owner. Why we'd love to keep money matters out activities, we need to make the Citizen Corner financially sustainable. In the interest to keep everything transparent, we have opened an open collective where everyone can transparently see the money streams and can contribute to our transparent budget or ask for funds: https://opencollective.com/citizencorner

Organizing an activity for the community

Thank you for considering creating an activity for the community in the Citizen Corner. We all have a vested interest in you being successful and financially sustainable. This is why we propose various models :

  • Are you getting an income from your activity? We ask you to help us cover costs and donate 25% of your income from this activity.
  • You are organising an event without looking to get paid? You can either rent the space or ask each participant to donate €2 to €5 Depending on type of activity and audience.
  • For charitable events we can always arrange something if enough members support the initiative. Just talk to us!

DAOs (Distributed Autonomous Organizations) are a new way to create cooperatives on the blockchain. We invite you to experience this future of organizations with us. That’s why we are creating a DAO for the Citizen Corner.

We are issuing 1000 tokens on the Polygon blockchain to represent those shares.
