Crowdfunding Campaign to Recover the Heritage of the Former Asland Cement Factory

A crowdfunding campaign was launched by LaFábrika detodalavida (LFDTV), to recover the old Asland cement factory located in Los Santos de Maimona. The campaign is promoted by La Kacharrería, one of the programs that has established itself in the social and cultural self-management space of Los Santos. The objective of the campaign is to raise funds for the necessary tools of the workshop.



The association LaFábrika detodalavida (LFDTV) has launched a crowdfunding campaign to continue its rehabilitation work in the space of the old Asland cement factory in Los Santos de Maimona (Badajoz).

Specifically, this crowdfunding has been promoted by La Kacharrería, a social, cultural, environmental and educational program based on the management and reuse of material resources for the sustainable self-construction of furniture, scenographies, and artistic infrastructures.

Created by a team with experience in Performing Arts, Architecture, Design, and Cultural Management, La Kacharrería is located in one of the industrial buildings of the old cement factory.

It consists of a warehouse of materials inventoried for reuse and a workshop staffed by professionals who develop work and courses in carpentry, blacksmithing, screen printing, wood prefabrication, etc..

Thus, its purpose is to promote dynamics “that promote self-employment and social development of the rural territory of Extremadura, and that promote sustainable construction and cooperative learning as tools for social and environmental awareness in the current consumer society,” according to the organization in a press release.

This is the second crowdfunding campaign promoted by LaFábrika detodalavida

The objective of the crowdfunding campaign is, in the first instance, to raise funds that will allow La Kacharrería to purchase essential tools for its workshop and generate social and economic activity through the efficient development of scenographic projects and self-built infrastructures.

Furthermore, considering that a large part of the rehabilitation of the heritage has been resolved thanks to the material and human resources of La Kacharrería, the ultimate goal of the campaign is to acquire economic funds that will make possible the rehabilitation of the old ‘laboratory’ of the cement factory, the only space still to be recovered from among the warehouses that make up the facade of LaFábrika detodalavida.

“The purpose is to build in it a dining room, a kitchen, bathrooms, bedrooms and a creation classroom: a rural school called Autopías that will be destined to the formation and residence of creators and artists of different disciplines: music, design, photography, theater, architecture,…”.

It should be noted that this is the second crowdfunding campaign promoted by LaFábrika detodalavida, which in 2013 managed to exceed the maximum requested and transform a disused place into a space that for more than ten years has been hosting social and cultural initiatives and projects.

Similarly, a few days ago, LaFábrika detodalavida presented on its new website its four consolidated programs: the ‘Festival Cine Al Fresco’, the public garden ‘Siempre Viva’, the record label ‘Corralón Records’ and the warehouse-workshop for sustainable self-construction ‘La Kacharrería’.

Finally, LFDTV has recovered its history with the creation of a documentary archive that will be published on its website and presented in a photographic exhibition that will take place in its facilities in the coming days.
