Waar is la fête ? 

Le 12 juin 2022, it’s a party to close the Neighborhood Contract in style

and of course, the open-air gAallery and Van Aa Street will be part of it!

On the program, among others : 

Espace Rabelais (rue Jules Bouillon) et rue Van Aa (closed for the  occasion)

14:00 > 18:00 : Animations, games for young and old… concocted by all the partners of the Neighborhood Contract and organized by the Urban Renovation Service in collaboration with Patrimoine à roulettes.

> the film «Visages villages», de JR & Agnès Varda – which inspired the idea of the ‘open-air gAallery’ – will be screened in the former INSAS building, in front of the café ‘l’Athénée’

18:00 > 19:00 : DJ-Set by Arnaud Ghys (Van Aa street), photographer and author of the first exhibition of the open-air gAallery ‘Lighthouse’

Our friend and neighbour Christian has passed away

Notre ami et voisin Christian s’en est allé. 😪
Architecte érudit, il en a éclairé plus d’un de ses conseils judicieux, nous permettant notamment de trouver la meilleure solution technique pour la réalisation de la gAalerie à ciel ouvert.
Il a mis en lumière l’histoire du quartier et de son architecture, nous contant celle du familistère “cité Gomand” lors des fêtes des voisins.
Il nous gratifiait de sa bonne humeur quand on le croisait, promenant son chien ou aux concerts de jazz sur la place Fernand Cocq.
Nul doute qu’il continuera à briller en allumant une étoile de plus au firmament.
Nos plus douces pensées accompagnent son épouse Jacqueline et toute sa famille.
Sylvia, pour l’équipe gAalerie,

Setting the scene

Arnaud’s pictures are more beautiful than the others, the printer is found, the steps with the town planning are well under way,…  All we have to do now is to stage it!
