Imaginarium – a gathering, dinner and party saturday the 6th of October


Dear companions, comrades and Makvärkister!

This coming fall you are invited for a gathering, a dinner, and a party at MAKVÄRKET.

This place where our lives, dreams and beliefs can cross, briefly or for longer. Let’s meet face to face and reinvestigate what kind of meeting point and political projects we imagine sharing in the old factory!

This day we want to collectively explore how to keep Makvärket a living place and the many ways all of us can engage in Makvärket. Be that through a working group, planning single events, taking smaller or bigger tasks or in any other way. It´s an invitation to talk about building and rebuilding our collective connections inside and outside the place, and about our common caring future.

We will organize a discussion for sharing ideas and concrete projects. There will also be an introduction to the structure of Makvärket and the endless possibilities within this. Later we will make dinner together and have a party.

Makvärket is a place to dream and talk and act out alternatives!

We have tried to invite groups and individuals, locals and non-locals, who have a relationship to Makvärket or that we know would like to in the future, as we want it to be a gathering of people who would like to contribute to keeping Makvärket an inspiring place. Feel free to spread the invitation to others you think would also like to be part.

If possible let us know that you come, so we can plan food and all. Send a mail to



Ceremony for David François

(Se dansk tekst nedenfor)
Sunday the 21st of October at 14.00 we gather to remember and say goodbye to our friend and co-activist David Francois. We invite friends and acquaintances of Francois to come by Makvärket and share the afternoon in memory of a unique person who is missed by many.

We meet at 14.00. Makvärket will provide tea and coffee, and in addition people are invited to bring something sweet or a snack for a common table. At 15.00 we will do a ceremony at the horse field to say goodbye to Francois. Afterwards people are welcome to hang out for a few hours to talk, remember or say goodbye in another way. Among other things, there will be the possibility to paint stones for a small Francois memorial – so please bring some smooth stones if you got some.

Love Makvärket

Søndag den 21. oktober kl. 14.00 samles vi for at mindes og sige farvel til vores ven og med-aktivist David Francois. Vi inviterer venner og bekendte af Francois til at komme til Makvärket og dele eftermiddagen i mindet om et unikt menneske som er savnet iblandt mange.

Vi mødes kl. 14.00. Makvärket sørger for the og kaffe og derudover håber vi at alle vil medbringe noget sødt eller en snack til et fælles bord. Kl. 15.00 vil vi på hestefolden lave en ceremoni for sammen at sige farvel til Francois. Herefter er folk velkommen til at blive hængende nogle timer og snakke, mindes eller tage afsked på anden vis. Bl.a. er der mulighed for at male sten til et mindested for Francois – så medbring gerne nogle små glatte sten.

Kærlige hilsner Makvärket

David Francois

On the night of the 9th of September, we lost our good friend David Francois, who has been a part of our community for many years.

Francois fell ill on Friday afternoon and was taken to the local hospital, where a large, undetected tumour was discovered in his brain. He was taken to Rigshospitalet for emergency surgery, but he didn’t make it out.

It’s hard to believe that someone so full of life, so giving and with such hope for the world is no longer with us. We’ll miss his open heart, his creative visions, his welcoming way of being and his croissants.

Thanks for the memories, the folk kitchens, the dreams, the chats, the festivals, the building projects and all the other moments great and small that we shared together. Francois sowed many seeds at Makvärket, in his allotment, in us, in the world, and he will always be with us.

Francois will be laid to rest in France by his friends and family there, but we will also hold a ritual in his memory at Makvärket. More information will follow for those interested in joining us.
