November 2019 was particularly turbulent but also really interesting for Cultureghem. In addition to our regular activities, we went to Finland to be inspired by local partners there. We also went to the exotic Horebeke for our teambuilding week to reflect and recharge. Then Eva, founder of Cultureghem, left us to start in the cabinet of the Flemish Minister for Brussels in order to convert the lessons learned from recent years into policy.
More than 6 years ago, we launched our project KOOKMET with the support of many Brussels residents. We built mobile kitchens and invited people from Brussels of all ages and their friends at the largest market in the capital to shop, cook and eat together.
3 years ago there was a meal at KOOKMET with representatives from the cultural centers and community centers from the Pajottenland and the Zenne valley.
Every Wednesday, Cultureghem vzw opens its pop-restaurant BARATTOIR from 12 to 2 pm.
We serve vegetarian food prepared with the unsold fruits and vegetables collected by COLLECTMET from the ABATTOIR market.
We host between 100 to 1000 people who come to eat or play all afternoon during our KETMET event.
