STUDIO HECTOLITRE - WHAT IS IT?
Studio Hectolitre, is one of the spaces of the Hectolitre project in the same way as the “Trait d’Union”, the “Reactor”, or the “Shared Atelier Partagé”. It is a hybrid duplex space around a terrace that mixes living and working places. On the 4th floor, the living spaces: 2 large bedrooms with balconies and a small bedroom. In the 3rd, the workspaces: an open space welcoming 8 workstations, a meeting room, a “Video Editing Room”, “Other Room” (collaborative work area) - and common spaces: a kitchen and a shared living room, a coffee corner and a large terrace.
Hectolitre is a project dedicated to artists and cultural professionals who wish to delve deeper into their projects, experiment with transdisciplinarity and/or connect their art to the local context, in a spirit of benevolent curiosity and innovation.
Hectolitre seeks to constitute an experience which underlies the role of artists in society and its importance by honoring their intuition and empowering their way of addressing reality. We see artists as agents of change, leaders of debates, callers of demands, to prevent moving in circles, explorers of the imagination, creators, inventors of possibilities, workers.
STUDIO HECTOLITRE - FOR WHO?
The place is open to all creatives and actors in the artistic field whose type of practice is suitable for developing in such a space - the Studio - and in such a context - Hectolitre. Applicants must be looking for a place of work (work & more) and / or temporary residence (live, work & more) and at the same time be aware of other aspects of the project of Hectolitre, exploring possibilities to generate exchanges and activities. For example, the invitation to use common spaces and resources - as a possibility to organize a public presentation of a work carried out, or (co)curate an event or activity. Particular attention is given to the constitution of a diversified group where the specificities of each reinforce the quality of the project’s experience.

ANNEXE - ADHESION TO HECTOLITRE A.S.B.L.
The Hectolitre a.s.b.l. was created at the end of 2019, giving a structural and legal frame to a project that has grown significantly since the initial impulse given by its founders in 2017.
To be able to use the Hectolitre spaces, artists and creatives must become members of the ASBL. They therefore adhere to the Hectolitre project and are curious and interested in joining an experimental project and a community around constant evolution. Membership brings a series of advantages such as the possibility of being able to use the spaces of the Reactor (exhibiting, performance, screening), of the Trait d'Union (open community, workshop and projects communication place), common areas of the Studio (meeting room, terrace), audio/podcast cave and the garden - all in good harmony and coordination with all the actors and respecting the spirit and the intention of each of these parties. Being a member also means having the opportunity to participate in development and reflection meetings around the project in a spirit of co-creation and above all in a series of moments of conviviality and exchanges around a coffee, a good drink or a shared meal.
