Escapades” en Art nouveau ?
Le foot, un monde de femmes?
No man's land

The voice does not mask... It communicates the uniqueness of the one who emits it, and can be recognised by those to whom one speaks

During the cultural season 2023-2024, The Post Collective is invited by BBOT, to contribute sonic stories to the institution's programme Narrating Diversity and Brussels' sound archive. The Post Collective is an autonomous platform for co-creation, co-learning and cultural activism, created by people with different means and access to artistic production and education due to their legal status.
Walking inside the pro-Palestinian manifestation on Sunday 22 October, our being together in a common desire resonated with the voices that surrounded us. Rarely one hears in everyday life, the intermingling of mismatched sounds as a transformative roar. At Schuman square, we walk together in mutual struggle, acknowledging our power, amplifying our voices and the stories we share.
As Hannah Arendt explains: Stories do not just show who we are but also what we have in common with others; not just who we think we are but also what shared circumstances shape our lives and our interdependent destinies.
As part of our work within BBOT, we The Post Collective will share on 11 November our common story and the experience of working within the landscape of Art institutions. This experience and ongoing reflection are formalised into a working document: the Paperless Art Alliance Contract (PAACT), a set of mutually agreed conditions from which we would like to work within and beyond the collective. We invite you to enter our common space and contribute to this reflection by sharing yours.
The working group of The Post Collective are: Taziri Al Omrani, Fareed Aziz, Marcus Bergner, Maarten De Vrieze, Firewyni Getahun, Sawsan Maher, Hanan Maher, Mirra Markhaëva, Golnesa Rezanezhad, Lazara Rosell, Elli Vassalou and Souheila Yildiz.
