-==== FoAM Brussels Calls ==== +This page was moved to the FoAM Bxl subwiki:

-===September 18th, 2017=== +

-Updates Rasa +

-After very social holidays i dived straight into the advising role for Eisa's new work “Your highness”. We premiered in the International Summer Festival Hamburg end of August. +
- +
-A week later i opened a  photo exhibition in Geel. As you already know this exhibition was the final showing of the works made with and by people with autism. Out of 24 photos only 10 was photographed by my self ( mainly the documentation of the process) and all the rest captured by the participants during the several walks in the Nature park Zammelsbroek. By introducing analog multiple exposure photography it allowed the participants to create many intriguing and beautiful results. The opening was very emotional for the people involved but very well received by the public. +

-September became a mash of unpacking FoAM boxes, having several advising sessions for various artists and socialising in our garden. +
- +
-On the horizon: +
- +
-*touring with Eisa her previous piece “The Princess” (save the dates in Brussels 6th and 7th of October!!!) +
- +
-*residency with performing artist Nelle Hens to help her research and develop one to one dance performance under the working title “Ont-moet” +
- +
-*opening ritual of Europalia on the 10th of October in collaboration with Barbara, Maja and Stevie +
- +
-*participating in the working group of Global Lithuania organised by the Ministry of the Foreign Affairs to re-think, re-invent and create a new vision for Lithuanian communities across the world. +
- +
-*together with Barbara guiding a few workshops on the daily mini rituals for kids in the frame work of Europalia  +
- +
-For the rest of the time i want to concentrate in harvesting and writing up all the workshops i've given in the past few years. And slowly unpacking more boxes and placing all the items nicely in our house!!! (Pictures will follow soon) +
- +
-In the mean time looking forward having more aperos, chats and spontaneous collaborations with the other  FoAMies. +
- +
- +
-==Amélie & Michka== +
- +
-   * Unfortunately, Amélie will be giving a French lesson at the time of the call, and Michka will be defending a bio-inspired design project with his designer colleagues in front of a big French client in Paris. We will sadly not be able to attend this call, however... +
-   * We hope that you all had a great summer. It was great to catch up with those of you who were at the Apero on Saturday. +
-   * Our FoAM related next steps for the next few months are : +
-     * A possible move to Lausanne before January, either to become the Biomimicry teaching coordinator at EPFL (plan A, job opening still to be confirmed by the end of September) or to design the first Mars public park (plan B, in negociation). +
-     * Opportunities for wild hosting-related activities and workshops are opening at [[http://thecamp.fr|thecamp]], an innovation center in the South of France. It looks pretty 'innovation cult'-driven, but some people inside seem to be willing to make it a more transformative place than it looks. They said they are willing to offer crazy workshop formats which have not be tried before elsewhere. +
-       * Maja & Michka are discussing the possibility to test an 'engineer cracking' format to open the mind, senses (and bodies ?) of this rationalist and conservative crew which plays a huge role in maintaining the establishment. +
-       * They were also quite receptive to Rasa's Kunst in de Keuken format for the summer camps & holiday camps they plan to offer to children. +
-     * Amélie & Michka are going to offer some more 'creative writing & science' experiences in an event organized by the network of French 'Houses for Science', several university-related structures which train secondary school teachers into teaching pupils scientific methodology and reasoning patterns rather than scientific culture (dinosaurs, volcanoes,, and so on). For the first time, they will gather all their trainers in an ex-sheepfold near Paris, and we will make them write crazy stuff (and try to avoid them to use writing exercises to prepare yet another course, like they did at our last workshop with them). +
-   * That's it for the main news on our side, enjoy the call, and looking forward to reading your notes !+
