In March 2020, PAF had to close its doors. After a period of global uncertainty, we carefully reopened in the summer. Since then PAF has proven to be a covid-safe, and pleasant place for work, thanks to its abundance of facilities.

However as an autonomous space with no subsidy or funding, PAF usually relies on large gatherings and groups –which have been impossible for over a year– and covid measures have made costs in the house higher.

In short, there is not enough income to pay for PAF's expenses, and we have accumulated debt. To make bridging this period possible, we need support.

We aim to collectively gather 30.000 euros / 2.500 euros a month, which would allow PAF to cover part of its basic costs for this year. This is why we call for the support of all those who at one time or another have enjoyed PAF.

PAF is currently open at reduced capacity, welcoming visitors and small groups who want to work and exchange in a concentrated atmosphere. Once travel restrictions are alleviated, PAF remains a wonderful site for individual stays and mid-scale gatherings. Do not hesitate to contact us if you are considering coming.
