ACT

Art, Climate, Transition

ACT is a European cooperation project on ecology, climate change and social transition. In an era of climate breakdown, mass extinction and growing inequalities we join our forces in a project on hope: connecting broad perspectives with specific, localized possibilities, ones that invite or demand that we ACT.
ACT is initiated by 10 cultural operators from 10 European countries working in the field of performing and visual arts. ACT is a project supported by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union for a period of four years (2019-2023).

The hope I am interested in is about broad perspectives with specific possibilities, ones that invite or demand that we act.’ – REBECCA SOLNIT

Sat 11.09 - Sat 11.12.21

How can you create a safe space in public space for the exchange of various forms of repressed or underexposed knowledge? This is the basic principle of bodies of knowledge (BOK), Sarah Vanhee's alternative school, that stays in the same spot in the city for a few weeks or months, and then moves again. From September 18, BOK will be installed in the centre of Brussels for three months. You can take part in a free programme every week, whether it be a walk, a workshop, a game or a read-aloud.

talk

Tue 14.12.21

During this evening, we will explore how human personhood has been constructed, and how it can be decentered and made to expand into different ways of seeing and being. The rational, universal individual has violently suppressed mutable persons existing at the intersection of multiple beings, as well as collective and interspecies ways of building knowledge that persist in the sciences, though often unrecognized. Underneath the steamroller of modernity, we will discover many possibilities for a more convivial future.

bodies of knowledge (BOK) considers the city as a rich source of valuable knowledge. Every passer- by could teach you something from their own background and life-experiences. BOK seeks to share this invisibilized or suppressed knowledge through oral transmission, that potentially could give rise to a socially more just society. The Big BOK Multiplication tells the story of one and a half year of BOK in Brussels. It's the gathering of a learning community, and an encounter with a living corpus of non-dominant knowledge. Feel welcome to join and learn along.

Fri 01.04 - Sat 02.04.22

Kate McIntosh's latest performance throws the work of several writers, composers and performers into the mix. Surrender to exhilarating polyrhythmic beats and the raw energy of layered voices. To Speak Light Pours Out is an invitation to enjoy the sharp energies of positive disruption and new possibilities. A shout-out to the lust for transformation, resistance and new forms of being!
