Data of Case Study on KasKantine Cooperative
datasetposted on 23.01.2020 by arthur feinberg
Datasets usually provide raw data for analysis. This raw data often comes in spreadsheet form, but can be any collection of data, on which analysis can be performed.
The dataset gives brief information on the KasKantine cooperative in Amsterdam (NL). This cooperative is an off-the-grid experiment and restaurant run by volunteers. It is supported by local communities who regularly come at its events: pizza night, brunch, concerts, discussions and multiple workshops. It does not live on governmental subsidies, although land is "given" for a limited period of time by the municipality. KasKantine's internal functioning principles relate it to the gift culture: either material or time. The data contains information on the dynamics and motivations to participate as a volunteer, with a comparison to values previously collected in an urban gardening initiative in Rotterdam (NL).
