Sunday we will land at the block party of La Dalle, a square between two buildings, close to Les Brigittines. In partnership with L'Escaut architectures and the local residents, Toestand will contribute to the future of the square in the coming two years.
Starting on Sunday, we will give the square a new colourful look. Garbage cans, flower boxes, fences… won’t escape our paintbrushes! Everyone is welcome to help, to meet or just to hang around. And there is more to enjoy: Concerts, a bouncy castle, a BBQ… and even a dog show.

Since 2015, we’ve been going abroad each summer: Kremenchuk, Ukraine in 2015 and Pristina, Kosova in 2016. This year, we are in Granada with a group of 35 volunteers to renovate an abandoned building for the Verano Abierto festival in the north of Granda.
Greetings from sunny Granada!
Termokiss is the cultural centre in Pristina, Kosovo, we created last summer with local young people and a Swiss organisation. Today, they are crowdfunding for their necessary repairs and their general functioning. Support Termokiss!
‘Biestebroek coordinator’ and Toestand co-founder Niels Coppens had an artist residency in the city of Mönchengladbach between March and August 2016, where he occupied an abandoned hotel during 6 months. Lucas Destrijcker followed the project and wrote a booklet which is now available at Allee Du Kaai and Biestebroek or online.
