End of the evening
Here everyone is an activist, everyone is empowered to change.
This is a project with Swedish artist Patrik Qvist in collaboration with Arts Lab Brussels and ifa laboratory. In November 2017 the team visited five locations in the Marolles in Brussels. In a simple photo studio we invited people to share views, thoughts and feelings about about environment, climate and how it is to be a human being in this neighbourhood. We talked to hundreds of persons, and photographed 280. Some wrote their own messages on cardboards, others chose statements that were already written. During five days we visited streets, squares, a swimming hall, and a school.
The discussions and conversations we took part of are reflected in the video file on this page.
