The former Borostyán Pharmacy was empty for years in Albertfalva Street, in Budapest. At Christmas 2017, Salva Vita Foundation received a joyful announcement of the generous support of THE VELUX FOUNDATIONS. In the spring of 2018, the Foundation purchased the property to create a new community and creativity space, which also implements training and employment of people with disabilities. Founders of Szeglet Community Space are Szilvia Heidl (Salva Vita Foundation) and Wertheimer Kinga (Tunki-Tunki), who soon found each other in the realization of their plans to create a living and diverse creative community. Get to know their story here.
Members of Szeglet Community Space team are partly the employees of the Salva Vita Foundation and partly start-up companies, five young entrepreneurs who, in addition to their expertise, contribute to the operation of the house by setting up new businesses there. Services offered at Szeglet will include vegan food production, textile design, recycling of waste materials, digital photo and video recording and processing, and all activities will be performed with the participation of disabled workers. In Szeglet Community Space there is also a community café and a 100-seat event room, where various events and community programs can be organised.
