A project by Collectif Les Meutes

Tour des Blocs is a local, multidisciplinary and participative project, carried out in three stages. First, the members of the collective "Les Meutes" and City-Zen invite the residents of the Model City district in Laeken to participate in a series of workshops during the summer in several disciplines (cinema, photography, theatre, calligraphy, music,...). Then, visitors who are keen to discover another side of Brussels join the inhabitants of the Model City to celebrate the end of the cycle of workshops during the one day Festival des Blocs. Finally, to finish this project in style, the blocks are touring the entire city from November to June to keep the inclusive festival spirit going. One month = one place = one (or more) drink = one selection of blocks

In February, the wolves leave the Model City and settle at Villa Empain (Fondation Boghossian). Participatory radio shows, installations, concerts, short films, video mapping, photo exhibitions, will have the Art Deco Villa vibrate with love.
