Festival du Coucou Puissant - 3 ème édition !

Short url: 


For the third consecutive year, the Festival du Coucou Puissant will be held in Brussels from October 8 to November 1, 2020. There are countless private, public or unclassifiable spaces, temporarily occupied in our big city. This festival wants to make visible the occupations and the interstices of creation, alternative housing, resistance and collective experimentation that tries to develop there. The Coucou Puissant wants to be autonomous and self-organized. We are aware of the diversity of places and practices (squat, legal ones with a temporary contract...). We are also aware that there are fewer and fewer squats in Brussels to the benefit of occupations negotiated in advance... This questions us and we wonder how to assert the dynamics of the squats? In the current context of "post" confinement and the eviction period coming back, we also want to affirm our support with the very young "anti-eviction front". The nomadic program of the festival will be able to support places in peril. The festival wants to be a space of solidarity, meeting, debate, autonomy, celebration and emancipation.

Festival of self-managed places in Brussels. The Festival du Coucou Puissant is a willingness of several occupations in Brussels to come together to strengthen the links between spaces. Our inspiration consists in proposing during a fortnight activities that we realize daily in our spaces.
