General information

A Maceta is a place for collaborative work and cultural actionl. A dynamizing space of social and environmental innovation from the local, Muros, to the regional and beyond.
Our main tools are creativity and teamwork.
The central element of the space is the dialogue table, the Xeiteira table. A table inspired by the traditional boats that used to sail in these waters. The Xeito was the traditional net used to catch sardines, which is the device that gives the boat its name.
With the space, a non-profit organization A Maceta was born, from which we want to promote various cultural actions in collaboration with the various territorial agents. The first of these actions is to launch this micro-patronage campaign aimed at raising funds for this very significant table, a table for all people

Main features and goals of the crowdfunding campaign

The space is part of a historic building on the seafront of the town of Muros. A Maceta is located on the ground floor, sheltered by the traditional porches where boats and fishing gear were kept. The refurbishment of the space is a firm step in the recovery of the historical memory of the place.
The central element of this space is the Xeiteira table, the conversation table, which is the protagonist of this crowdfunding campaign, inspired by local culture and heritage.
A table that seeks to facilitate dialogue between people, collective work using creativity as the main tool and culture as the backbone of the actions to be carried out.
It is a whole, a dialogue table, and at the same time, it is divided into four, the shipwreck table. Thus allowing the organization in different work groups.
It is handmade, with 100% local timber. It is more than 4 meters long and 1.6 meters wide.
An inclusive and fun table
a table for all people

Why this is important

The current ecosocial, environmental and values crisis leads us to face problems of great complexity almost unarmed. We need to reconnect with ourselves and our Community to concentrate efforts that achieve a greater impact from the collective.
The rural areas presents a great opportunity both for its natural and cultural resources. Another great opportunity is that we are part of a global community, we can take advantage more than ever of the exchange of** information and talent that normally left the rural areas isolated.
On the other hand, for decades we have been losing the physical and cultural spaces, generation and cultivation of the Community so characteristic of the countryside.
A Maceta is born as a space for connection and inspiration that favors the creation of new collaboration networks. A space that facilitates the cooperation of the different agents of the local ecosystem with the talent that can come from other parts of Galicia and the world.
A space open to locals and people who travel through these homes to telework, to institutions and citizen organizations that need a place to convene and present themselves.
We envision a diverse Community sitting around a table, the Xeiteira table, inspired by local culture and heritage.**


Team and experience

The non-profit organization A Maceta is made up of 3 great women: Alba, Sara and Laura, who share concerns, vision and purpose.
Alba, muradana, promoter of the initiative. With more than 10 years of experience as an architect specializing in sustainability, health and well-being with projects spread across different communities on the planet. Extensive design experience that covers from the design of objects with the principles of circularity to the design of strategies for the regeneration of communities.
Sara, curious and all-terrain woman. It could be summed up in that she is an engineer specializing in the improvement of processes and the environment, that the paths of life have led her to focus on what really matters: generating a positive impact on the world starting with her territory. She lives in the village where she feels her home is, and actively collaborates in the Maceta's sister project, Villa Regina, in Santa Comba.
Laura, accompanying the initiative from the interest of promoting the local social, cultural and natural capital working from the social and financial innovation field in which she has developed professionally for more than 10 years.
