Meet the Community

NieuwLand is solidary and self-built space for living and working, and a non-commercial, volunteer-run social-political centre in Dapperbuurt, Amsterdam Oost.

Living – Woehoe

Our living  tribu Woehoe is the a team of eleven people creating living and sharing the building every day.


Public Space

The NieuwLand public space collective organises a monthly program with documentary, film and discussion nights, workshops, garden days, chess nights, and cultural events for the neighborhood and beyond. If you would like to contribute by organising an event Join the public space.

The public space has room for other collectives to organise their meetings, trainings and other events. One of the collectives that operates in the public space is Paper Jam Collective – a radical printing collective that has a space upstairs.

We are a printing collective that strives to form part of a radical infrastructure in the form of bizarrely cheap printing for revolutionary organisations!





The workspaces are intended for socially engaged organisations, neighbourhood initiatives or small enterprises like artists or craftspeople. We have a preference for collective projects that spark engagement in and by the neighbourhood, and the tenants are expected to get involved in the day to day running of the building and the public space. 


We are the FietsKliniek! We fix and recycle bicycles by reusing secondhand bike parts. There is no problem we can’t solve!



Luk Hop Moon Kung Fu

 LHM Martial Club is the place where people can practice Kung Fu and Lion Dance in a cozy atmosphere and with mutual respect.




BalkonTactics – Public lab for digital self-defense 

 We are interested in politics, communication and technology, which comes to be called techno-politics. We observe, investigate, learn and debate about their interactions. As well as the relations between the spread use of Internet and privacy options.
