Where artists and people from Brussels meet each other on an equal footing

OMTA stands for Open Meeting Space for Temporary Art.

It’s a place for artists to do their thing.

And for you, as a visitor, to enjoy art and food, and connect with others.

The art comes in all forms, from concerts and open-air cinema to theater performances and even embroidery evenings.


We believe in the unifying power of art in public areas. That’s why we bring it to our site at Abattoir. Art becomes an impulse for meetings between people who, for whatever reason, are yet to find their way to more classical cultureal sites.

In a nutshell

Meet each other through art. Art has the power to raise questions, get us thinking, and bring us together. We’ve brought this power to our meeting place in Kuregem where everyone is welcome.

With a delicious meal. Count on a satisfying bite to eat when we organize artistic activities here: we feed your mind and your stomach. We are happiest when we are able to create a link between what’s on your plate and the work of the artist(s). - Onderaan: deeltje "Why do we organize OMTA?"

Not just art. Yes, art is welcome here in all its forms. But never exclusively. You should expect a mix of food, meetings and other ingredients. This way, a work of art becomes part of something greater and artistic practices are embedded in our daily reality.

Mixed audience. Among others, the OMTA audience consists of passers-by, interested residents from the neighborhood, our dreamteam and artists. And maybe you could be part of it too?

Who’s it for?

Everyone. And espacially for any artist – or anyone with artistic ambitions – who has an idea and wants to work together with their neighborhood and the city.

How do we organise OMTA?

Curious about how we make artistic choices? Curious about how we ensure that citizens appropriate public space  by putting its cultural programming entirely in the hands of its users? Find out here.
