Concert Noura Mint Seymali
Traditional blues and psychedelia with Mauritanian influences: not an everyday combination, but with a fantastic result. Noura Mint Seymali brings her band, her husband, Jeiche Ould Chighaly and others to reveal her African “desert blues” to Belgium for the first time.
Her latest album Tzenni is considered by music experts as one of the best African releases of 2014.
This concert is for everyone, including fans of Tinariwen, Umm Kulthum and Captain Beefheart.

Concert Le Colisée
Le Colisée is the project of Brussels’ young David Nzeyimana. He comes with his band, which includes members of, Robbing Millions and Lonely Drifter Karen. Le Colisée is dark folk with some afro-beat, but mostly it’s strange, intimate, pure and honest pop. In the music you can hear echoes of David Byrne, Kate Bush, Animal Collective and even the Beach Boys. This year, the fledgling talent released their first EP, “Vie Eternelle” and are best experienced live with a wonderful SUNNY SIDE UP cocktail.

Rendezvous Stijn Van Dorpe
Do the views of the artist fall alongside with those of the spectator? Stijn Van Dorpe invites the visitor for an informal discussion about (and set amid) his work in the exhibition ## Ideologie AUB! A conceptual model: Activity 1046 ##.

Performance “…juste pour voir” (THAT’S IT! – workshop Joëlle Tuerlinckx)

Workshop Food Archeoloog meets Food Futures
Jeroen Van Vaerenbergh, the first-ever Food Archaeologist in Belgium, and food visionary and cook, Rasa Alksnyte, from Food Futures, an outcome from the European project Future Fabulators made by FoAM, invite you to a fascinating conversation about food and how past and future meet each other at the table. “During an archaeological food-experience you scoot up to the table with our ancestors and look ahead with them to what the future brings. How the Romans approach their food, what was on a medieval menu and what kind of food does the future hold?”

Rendez-vous Textiel, een geheugen en een toekomst
How does the future look in the world of textiles and what elements of from the past will make a comeback?
The Netwerk building formerly housed the textile factory / passementerie, Van Den Brulle. Former owner Marcel Van den Brulle, along with his wife and sister-in-law, undergoes a dialogue with the young textile designer, Olu Vandenbussche. Under the label Manel, Olu examines the sustainable, social and environmentally friendly production of textiles.
Bring own knitting needles and wool along, because it is “World Wide Knit in Public Day”.

Interactive installation Meccano
Like the Meccanos of the past. But then for outdoors, mega, maxi and without a plan.
In a single day, armed with fittings, nuts, bolts and hundreds of wooden planks, Rocsa vzw builds a temporary Meccano sculpture. A monumental intervention in relation with the environment. A dynamic space. Contained in the moment.

Children’s Café Een terugblik
During Children’s Café the children take a journey back through the past season in Netwerk. Through creative activities they (re) discover the themes of the exhibitions Orchest!, Frank & Robbert Robbert & Frank and Dimitri Vangrunderbeek.
Puzzles, constructions, drawing… Everybody join in!
