Unfortunate news! Due to the rain we have to postpone our planned Open Platform Meeting. We specifically opted for an outdoor space in the open air, but taking the COVID measures into account, we were unable to find an indoor space that was large and safe enough for the high number of people expected to attend. If the situation allows it, we will finally see each other in real life after the summer holidays.
In the meantime, enjoy “Still Standing”, very soon there will be more. Follow our actions and the political situation through this letter. If you have any questions or ideas, you can always contact us.

1200 ARTISTS & CULTURAL WORKERS IN 11 BELGIAN CITIES
Were you there or did you see it on the news or on facebook? Last Thursday, more than 1,200 artists, technicians and other cultural workers in 11 Belgian cities turned into living statues. As the world moves again, many of us are still standing still.
The #stillstanding action that we organised together with Artistes Affilié.e.s and 50 artists’ federations was a success. Watch and share our film. This is how we increase the pressure on politicians to finally vote a solution in the plenary session of the federal parliament on 9 July – after the emergency advice of the State Council. In the meantime, we are working on the next actions, also from home. More soon!
