Cultural activities on Wednesday evenings

by | Jul 14, 2021

We believe in the magic, beauty and connecting power of the arts. That is why we want to transform the Abattoir into OMTA (Open Meeting Space for Temporary Art): a meeting place open to everyone, including artists! 

This summer, we want to show what our fantastic site has to offer in terms of the arts: from the end of June to mid-September, on Wednesday evenings, we will transform the covered market into a concert hall, an open-air cinema, a theatre, … We are testing the first partnerships and laying the foundation stone for OMTA.

We open the summer with a few concerts in collaboration with Orfeo. At the beginning of August, we launch a partnership with Cinéma Galeries. As part of their open-air festival L’heure d’été, we’ll be showing films that are all about food. On those evenings, come and enjoy a delicious meal related to the theme of the film in our DREAMKITCHEN. Mid-August we will have a visit from the “Ne Mosquito Pas”- collective.
