USE AND CARE
The mutual use of the facilities is discussed and negotiated between everyone present at MASSIA. The MASSIA basics provide the guiding principles. This also applies to daily maintaining and taking care of the spaces and equipment; The things in MASSIA are there for you and you are there for the things as well (e.g. the studio space is there for you, as long as you are there for the studio space).
In the warmer months the garden provides a limited amount of food – you can harvest herbs and food in exchange for care/labour. There is wild food knowledge in the space if you are interested to forage.
Although winters can be tough in Estonia, the building has central heating. In 2021 MASSIA has upgraded to a powerful and automated wood pellet burner and new radiators which keep living and work spaces pleasant also in winter times.
