(Wearing a tie is optional 😉 )

Toestand: Job offer!
Toestand is hiring! We are looking for an administrative associate to join our team, someone who knows how to manage a budget, who is capable of coaching a team and able to follow up different projects. Someone who is well organized, strict but fair, multilingual and socially engaged. In other words: a genius. Since you don’t find a genius on every corner, we’re kindly asking to spread the word!
Here we go again with a well filled newsletter since there’s a lot we`d like to share. For the first time Toestand received structural support from the VGC. We feel that a long- term vision is exactly what a city like Brussels needs (and what’s missing too often) and therefore we are very grateful for their support. It gives us the opportunity to look ahead and seize new opportunities. Click here for more information.
Moving in style!
Biestebroek is moving in less than one month. An end of an era, but at the same time the beginning of a new chapter. Obviously we won’t let this go unnoticed! Help us moving in style during the ‘verhuis festival du démenagement’ or just come over to celebrate. The festival consists of two parts: a flea market on the 9th of December and a moving-day on the 16th. Let’s give the old Pias-site the goodbye it deserves!
We’re still searching for a new location. Bruzz wrote an article about our search, Click here to find it.
Marie Moskou: Moskollectif
Marie Moskou proudly presents their youngest partner: Moskollectif. On December 10th, their collective compost officially takes off. The intention is to create a place where people living in the area of the Marie-Jonson square (carré Moskou) can deposit their organic garbage. After the process of decomposition, the resulting potting soil will be used at a communal vegetable garden that will focus mainly on growing zucchinis. We’re very happy with this useful, ecological initiative and of course it’s an excellent opportunity to get to know your sympathetic neighbours.

About the anti squat law
From now on squatting is considered a crime in Belgium. It’s a fact that we are forced to face. A city in motion? All of a sudden the dynamic character of the city is reduced. This law touches the weakest layers of society, those who don’t ‘have’ but are ‘in need of’. It resolutely goes against our ideology. The first of November, a second demonstration will take place.

Toestand International: Parque Del Arco Iris
After the premiere at Biestebroek, the documentary about our adventure in Granada made by Les Mecs, was released by Apache, an online newspaper that focuses on investicative journalism. The documentary was released whitin an article that gives that elaborates on the intervention and focuses on our bottom-up mentality. Click here to find the article. Soon, the documentary will be uploaded to our Facebook page as well, so it will be easier to find. Keep an eye on our page!
Marie Moskou is looking back at a successful Building Day. Thank you to our partners for their tasty pumpkin soups, sweet blood pancakes and great radio vibes. We`d also like to thank all attendees and volunteers. Winter is coming, but the benches, garbage cans, flower boxes etc. are looking more alive than ever! We can’t wait to see you all again at the next building day.
