431 initiated WTC A Love Story from an interest in filmmaking as an architectural tool. The day after the avant-premiere, you can attend two follow-up workshops exploring alternative forms of space-making which emerged out of the production process.

10:00 > 13:00 Workshop 1: A coalition of social actors in the Northern Quarter?
The heterogeneous group of social and activist actors from the Northern District come together to reflect upon the plausibility of a structured and collective representation of their actions in the form of a coalition towards policy. This is a closed workshop.

16:00 > 18:00 Workshop 2: Permanent
How to fight the gentrifying and exploitative tendencies of temporary occupation? The collective Permanent proposes strategies for permanently affordable (work)spaces for artists, in combination with other precarious groups, through models of anti-speculative ownership. How can artists reclaim agency to shape a more solidary city?

In the 1970s, the two World Trade Centre towers crowned the newly developed ‘Little Manhattan’ in Brussels’ Northern District. The project failed, leaving the towers and surrounding area largely abandoned. Since late 2017, the owner of the towers has shown a renewed interest in the area. Closely witnessing the changes from their studio space on the 25th floor of WTC tower 1, Lietje Bauwens and Wouter De Raeve decided to enter the debate by making a film with the actors that claim a voice in the transition.
