The Rebuilding of ART Vort’n Vis has started in 2014 and coming to an end…
and we’re pretty focussed on just that!

In the meanwhile, we keep getting requests for all sorts of activities, but unfortunately we can’t facilitate as much as we would love to at TAZ (Temporary Autonomous Zone) Vort’n Vis – Diksmuidseweg 59 Ieper (Belgium). That’s exactly why we’re rebuilding (y)our Autonomous Space right in the centre of Ypres in a way that it will fit everybody’s needs (but that takes a lot of our time & energy, not to mention a lot of cursed money! Sure hope you’ll understand if you don’t get a reply (straight away), but do try!

Click on the picture hereunder to follow the rebuilding progress on Facebook & get in touch if you want to help out! Thanx.

Siempre Vort'n Vis

Vergeten om je cassettes netjes te labelen? Cassettes gevonden op zolder? Kom ze ‘herontdekken’ tijdens de Vort’n Vis cassette sessies onder het motto: Laat het ‘zoemen’ met oude cassettes! We gaan het ook laten ‘zoemen met bloemen’! Er is een oude radio aanwezig + heel veel bloemenzaad, rakeltjes, schoppen, zelfgemaakte gieters, een boom met afval en veel grind rond, een tuintje … Om het met de woorden van Ren en Stimpy te zeggen: happy happy joy joy! Of met de woorden van Albert Einstein: “If bees were to disappear from the globe, mankind would only have four years left to live.”

Bestel hier GRATIS een mengsel van éénjarige en meerjarige bloemen voor bijen: – ge ontvangt de zaden een klein weekje later in de brievenbus – of kom een pakketje ophalen bij ons in ‘t café op 12 april!

Heb jij bloemenzaad uitgezaaid? Deel dan je foto’s en ervaringen op deze Facebookpagina!
