Valami Produktív

Budapest

Valami Produktív is a public art workshop in the center of Budapest. The idea of the studio place was primarily to create an inspirational platform for artists representing various art fields such as serigraphy, analogue photography, and bookbinding. The studio is also open for other multi-arts activities. Our goal is to preserve the traditional manual techniques of these fields and present them to the wider audience. In addition, we think there is a need for searching for new opportunities for these old techniques by putting them into a new and contemporary context. As a representative of slow design the workshop is involved in fine arts projects, provides educational and creative services as well as production.

History

The workshop was founded in 2013 by Gergő Bíró. It started as a self-funded project with 5 permanent members, in 2015 Lilla Szántói joined the team. Over the years, this grassroots self-made organization grew into a business with a mature concept, the Valami Produktív (“something productive”). Between 2013-18, the workshop operated in Józsefváros's Vas street, then in 2019 the studio moved to Bauer Sándor street in the same district.
