At the origin of Terra
Sharing knowledge and know-how, creating human, cultural and economic synergies, working in a constantly evolving place is what has brought five people together on a common project.
They want to reinvent a space of co-working "multi-entries" in the city of Poitiers, where they met.
A meeting with two owners who wish to make live and provide viabilization of a place that has been acquired has made this dream come true: TERAA was born.
Creation of SCIC
The seven partners are eager to create a company in the image of the values they defend in the TERAA project: those of exchange and cooperation. They have a desire to organize the governance of the place themselves in a logic of independence and transparency. The cooperative society responds to this desire.
TERAA wishes to remain open to all those who find it, starting with the project initiators with different but complementary professional profiles (independent, creative, students, job seekers).
The logic of integration does not end there. So the beneficiaries of the place (coworkers, producers, labels or cultural associations ...) like TERA'AMIS (people sharing the values of the project) must have their place: TERAA is a SCIC, cooperative society of collective interest.
The site articulates various activities:
- leasing collaborative and open workspaces,
- vinyl press,
- support services for companies and artistic training,
- open and collaborative wood and low tech workshops,
- TERA AGORA: café and boutique culture,
- Shared gardens.
Everyone can, at will, exchange, appropriate tools and empower themselves Techniques of manufacture, creation: TERAA is thus in line with the logic of capacitation. The aim is to make individuals autonomous in relation to activities in which they are dependent, to give them power over the world around them.
