I'd like to order something. What I'd like is a bench on my back, for visitors, to sit on, with back- and armrests. But actually, I'd prefer a garden, with a bench in it. As you know, I've already got a fountain. It's a bit hard for me to come to you from the middle of the ocean, but I will come. And I will bring a palm tree.

A whale is making its way to Belgium. The sea scouts, the sailing clubs, the libraries and harbors in Brussels, Antwerp and Gent prepare wild compositions for her arrival.

Werkplaatz Walter
Brussels, BE

www.werkplaatswalter.be

Werkplaats Walter is a work and performance place for experimental and avant-garde art and music in Brussels. Walter is an initiative by musician Teun Verbruggen. In a promising building Walter invites Brussels and international visual artists and musicians in, offering workshop and rehearsal spaces, as well as possible residency and a concert hall. Walter unites artists driven by experiment and improvisation. Walter nestles in the very heart of Cureghem (Anderlecht), a densely-populated neighbourhood, a stone's throw away from Brussels' city centre and in the middle of the rapidly developing canal district.

Pupils of a school, library visitors, residents of the neighborhood, ... are invited to participate in both the design phase and the implementation of projects. In doing so, participants start to claim the projects out of which sustainable partnerships between designers and users develop.
