Micronomics Festival, 2006

Désolé! Cette page n'a pas (encore) été traduite en Français.

The first Micronomics Festival took place in November 2006. Presentations, debates and performances were organised in the former Maritime School in the Maritiem neighbourhood in Molenbeek and a documentation centre was set up. At the same time, a public action was set up at the North Station: installations by city activists from Barcelona, London, Brussels and Caracas, interviews with commuters, office workers and local residents, video projections in a multimedia caravan, fairytales before going home and "a micro market as a temporary economic free zone".

Three completely different editions of the Micronomics festival were to follow in the Midi neighbourhood, at the end of Dansaertstreet, and a last one decentralised in Molenbeek, Brussels and Ixelles. It gave rise to bottom-up economy workshops with participants from 19 countries, an ever-expanding documentation centre, artistic programming and creations such as the Waffle Bank - a bank where a skill can be exchanged for a hot waffle - or the Soup Machine - an open design process for a machine that can turn a vegetable into fresh soup in 7 minutes in a public place.
