Fair Kin Arts Almanac
On Saturday, September 09th 2023, we launched the first copies of the
Fair Kin Arts Almanac. The voices of more than 130 artists, thinkers, writers and other creatures proudly fill 420 pages, addressing a gamut of topics, circulating in 12 chapters around a year.
Perspectives, recipes, good ideas and in depth reflections around ecology, parenthood, the need to rest in a life that never stops, the urgency for space and infrastructure for artists, redistribution of resources, accessibility of the sector, artistic involvement in politics and much more.

In Solidarity with Palestine
We strongly condemn the war crimes committed by the Israeli regime against the civilian population in Gaza. We express our solidarity with the Palestinian population and call for an immediate ceasefire and an end to the blockade.
On November 29th, the Belgian cultural sector – individual artists, art workers and institutions – responded to ASHTAR Theatre’s urgent and worldwide app to publicly read or perform the Gaza Monologues on the occasion of the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People. You will find a selection of the readings in our archive.
SOTA Foyers & Dialogue Durable
In autumn and winter SOTA organised a series of early evening gatherings where we aimed to forge fresh alliances from outside our familiar bubble, and to rekindle old friendships. Each evening had its own focus with special guests sharing proposals and ideas.
Save the dates for the next SOTA foyers in 2024 @ the Beursschouwburg, Brussels:
