Encounter with… communal spaces

House of Time is a social-artistic project located on the edge of Bruges’s inner city: a secluded green area where youngsters can come together to think about change and, above all, live in the moment. After the Bruges Triennial 2018, co-organisers raumlabor have followed up on the pilot project and are continuing to operate and expand it locally. Various options are being examined and discussed: How can this place give meaning not only to local youngsters, but also to the neighbourhood? What impact does a communal space like House of Time have on a historic city like Bruges?

Discussion

House of Time is a social-artistic project located on the edge of Bruges’s inner city: a secluded green area where youngsters can come together to think about change and, above all, live in the moment. As these youngsters design, build, cook and eat together, friendships are made, relationships forged, talents discovered and change processes – small and large – are brought about. Nothing is compulsory, everything is possible. After the Bruges Triennial 2018, co-organisers raumlabor have followed up on the pilot project and are continuing to operate and expand it locally. Various options are being examined and discussed: How can this place give meaning not only to local youngsters, but also to the neighbourhood? What spatial, social and cultural impact does a communal space like House of Time have on a historic city like Bruges? And what do the youngsters themselves think of it?
