DAAR shared space
Co-working space @Rotsoord in Utrecht
In the summer of 2016 Leentje and I started working on a co-working space. We were sharing a temporary studio nearby and wanted to create an urban office for like-minded people. Mostly creatives, independents, freelancers in search for colleagues.
We saw people getting more productive, starting new business plans and relations, trying new things together.
Especially during the Covid and all the lockdowns
DAAR was a beacon of tranquility.
Leentje decided to leave the ship – the last one and a half year I kept on running it on my own until the summer of 2022. In August 2022 the great festival Le Guess Who? took it out of my hands and use it as their home base. I’m grateful for all the years – all you people who kept coming to work DAAR, all the people just hoppin’ in, even if it was just once and all groups that took over the space every now and then!
I am convinced that LGW? will have a inspiring and creative time @ the Helling 150 for years to come.
