Our House Project stimulates integration. Refugees, asylum seekers and immigrants are here now with talents, skills and open minds; ready to make friends, learn languages and introduce the best of their culture to us. Let's meet them halfway with Our House Project and share the exciting adventure of integration together. Our House Project is working on a multi level platform to help our new friends start their lives here. These include job creation and training in the hospitality industries, hair beauty and barber vocations, translation and administration as well as offering integration support with language, accommodation and community involvement.
Wings & Borders
Working with the theme of ENTER, Kontakt cultural centre showcases a participatory installation of origami birds through its spaces. The installation looks to capture the fluidity and performative nature of the migration patterns of birds without the recognition of borders, bringing into light a different image to human migration. The designers Desi Petkova and Rosie Romero are from OURB, a collective that works to activates the community of Brussels region, through participatory design workshops that inspire citizens to re-think their surrounding urban spaces.
