In 2016 we held a month events and workshops at the Veem Huis voor Performance imagining and building a collective Roof together. We brought together a public, that is not easily reached by the institution, a good representation of the public space, where we have been working over the last five years. The people who came, took part in different ways: joining our workshops, building, helping us to organise the events, writing about the work, making a small performance with us or sharing a speech.
The Veem house became therefore an open house, a public sphere, a Roof for many. At the end of this month we created the first prototype of The Roof and inaugurated it together in the form of a public ceremony in Zeeheldenbuurt, where it stayed for one week.
