MASSIA has 3 rules.
– Don’t leave traces (clean behind you in order to leave every square centimeter, that is not your private room, all the time available for everybody)
– Make it possible for others ( thought as to open up space(s) by showing a rehearsal or a movie, giving a lecture, starting a discussion or cleaning a corridor, or as to keep space(s) open by keeping them available and not occupied with traces from you)
– The do-er decides (things are decided by the one’s who do more than the ones who speak)
(Think them interrelated)
MASSIA has 3 principles.
1. Reversibility. The things in MASSIA ( whether they are objects, subjects or institutions/organisations) are there for you and you are there for the things as well. I.e. MASSIA or the coffee machine, the other or a corridor is there for you as much as you are there for MASSIA or the coffee machine, for the other or the corridor.
2. Exchange. Of whatever Knowledge, Machines, Expertise, Spaces, Times, Things
3. Liquidity. You are kindly invited to make fluid what is fixed, whether this concerns your mental (I am like this) or your material property.
If nobody is in at your arrival you can find the keys in a key lock box situated near the back door we use as entrance, where the pile of wood is. You will receive the code to open the box and get the keys before your arrival. A map of the building is displayed at the entrance in front of the stairs. Please find a bedroom you would like to sleep in and your sheets and towel in the comfort room. Further info on the functioning of the house is found in the kitchen (first floor), pinned on the wall board.
Sirje Ruusma is a lady, a kind neighbour, who lives next door and knows everything about the house. She takes care of the heating and most probably will pass by when she sees the light inside. In case there’s a problem, her nr. Is +372 523 4381 but she speaks only Estonian.
The mutual use of the available studios is discussed and negotiated between the colleagues when you are in MASSIA. The principles and rules are the guidelines for this.
When you leave. Do not forget to lock the door and to put the key back in the box! And make sure you did put off lights, gas, and machines.
We wish you a fruitful time in MASSIA.
