MOS | Mira ter Braak

Mira, co-initiator of MOS collective, is a creative project developer and spatial designer. She connects people, space and experiences.

MOS is specialized in the concept, design and execution of interiors, events and festivals. MOS works on projects that inspire on several levels. MOS does buildings with a soul and events with a vision. MOS still is or was part of the conceptual development and design of the following picked spaces in random order.

• Restaurant Instock,
• LOLA LIK (Bijlmer Bajes) Courtyard,
• Concertgemaal,
• 25 years Max Havelaar,
• Stadsschouwburg,
• De Balie
• Oude Stadhuis Harderwijk.

Mira was recently invited by the Association of Dutch Designers (BNO) as a specialist to give a lecture about the potential and interventions of spaces. Due a temporary or permanent re-destination regarding the building, users and residents.

Parallel to interior based projects Mira is driven by starting up social projects from scratch. This started ten years ago when she organised together with a small team of dreamers and ideologists the interdisciplinary creative space ‘Studio/K’.

After this project she continued following her ambition and she started an artist initiative known as ‘de Modestraat’ situated in the North of Amsterdam. There she curated and encouraged the creative hub, where cultural entrepreneurs, local startups and neighborhood residents rent workspaces, inspire each other and work together on creative projects.

In addition to the Modestraat, Mira got involved as an initiator and designer at the Mama Louise Foundation, a platform for talent and neighborhood development, which stimulates the revitalization of the local economy and the potential for local entrepreneurship.[:]
