The Collectif "Le Boulet" presents: a new collective, creative
and active living space.
For a few days now, we, a group of people of various origins and
from different scenes - students, unemployed, artists etc -
occupied the buildings located at the 23-25 rue du Boulet in the
center of Brussels. Because of our precarious means of
subsistence, we needed a space where we could develop our
projects, be they political or artistic, and liva a collective
life. 

The buildings which we have taken over belong to the Sofidev
company. These buildings were being left to rot by the owner but
are nonetheless completely viable. Although the need for housing
with affordable rent is significant, certain companies, in
collusion with the city authorities, practise a policy of
real-estate speculation by expropriating the inhabitants of
various Brussels districts in order to "raise the tone" of the
city centre with luxury shops and high-rent housing. 

In reaction to this, we want to put some life back into those
unoccupied spaces, and make them suitable for living and for the
devolpent of non-lucrative activities: 

- soundproof rehearsal rooms for theatre, music and dance
projects. 
- spaces for political and cultural activities, with an ethos of
solidarity, and not the traditional commercial ethos (infopoint:
distribution and sharing of knowledge through booklets and
fanzines, video projections, meetings and discussions, etc). 

As of now, you can come and visit us at n° 23-25, rue du Boulet,
1000 Brusselss.
