Szeglet Community Space

The building giving space for former Borostyán Pharmacy had stood empty for years in Albertfalva street, the 11th district of Budapest. On Christmas of 2017 this changed. Salva Vita Foundation received the news that its application won the grant launched by THE VELUX FOUNDATIONS in Denmark, making possible to purchase the property. With joint effort, we have set up Szeglet Community & Experience Space here.

Szeglet is much more than just a venue for events. Beside the services provided by the café and conference rooms a unique gastro kitchen suitable for cooking together, organizing team building events also available. The Community & Experience Space is operated and managed by Salva Vita Foundation, whose main profile is supporting disabled people finding a job on the free labour market. Employing enabled persons at the small companies operating in Szeglet is a key element also of the Community & Experience Space’s social responsibility.

Dreamers of Szeglet

Szilvi Heidl and Kinga Wertheimer are the dreamers of Szeglet Community Space. For the first time they met, they immediately felt that their meeting was not accidental.
Salva Vita Foundation has long been planning to create a community space that can serve as the foundation's training and event center, but it can also be a creative space and a workplace for people with disabilities. The ideas of Kinga Tunki-tunki kitchen and community workshop meant a clear connection to this. With the help of his friends and with her help, a group of start-ups was found, and youngsters who were happy to join the initiative soon joined together. Joint thinking and planning were followed, and the application of THE VELUX FOUNDATIONS soon brought the opportunity of implementation closer.
In 2017, under the guidance of Katalin Vég, managing director and with the participation of Nóra Czoboly, project manager the application of the Salva Vita Foundation was successful.
Now the dream seems to be coming true! Keep on following the story...

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.
