A guest at – GRNS Rode Poort
Since a couple of months, the neighborhood residents of Rode Poort in Strombeek and Cultureghem have worked together to create a gathering place on an empty lawn. On 9 September, PeriFeria will be their guest. PeriFeria will bring together the architects and urbanists of Bruit du Frigo and Omgeving for presentation and a talk. In the meantime De Brigade will provide something to accompany our cup of coffee. The neighborhood residents on their side will provide a friendly welcome and a place for games and entertainment.
GRNS is a gathering place at the ‘Rode Poort’ in Strombeek. An abandoned lawn that has been occupied since May 2017 by Neighborhood residents, friends, relatives, and other ‘Rode Poort’ enthusiasts. Cultureghem and CC Strombeek serve as facilitators. The residents of the neighborhood create their own public space on the lawn. They are making a playground for children, a place to barbecue, all sorts of benches and furniture for young and old, a repair workshop with shared tools. All in their own vision and pace.
