the cultural team, this time with Pracownia Miejska (@Justyna_Krol and Monika Koszewska), prepared a presentation for the first round of applications for Virgin Mobile academy. The prize is 100.000 zł, which is roughly 25.000 euros - a fine number for a project in Poland, we can really do something probably long enough to prototype a lasting communal entity-thingy. Pracownia with a brand new NGO is already considering creating an impact hub in Konin, which I think would help overcome some of the drawbacks of the original unmonastery - there would be space and people who really care about these things to happen and be successful and long-lasting.

The results of the first round of Virgin Academy are on the 15th of April, and after that date (around it) we could skype and discuss it. @Noemi, @Nadia,@Alberto , I’d be happy to have you at least for a starting talk, because if we really want to push for an unmonastery Konin, it would be great to hear your opinions, tips, etc.
