Vitrinexpo + Pop-up shop + Crafters QG
1 > 18 December
Lakensestraat / rue de Laeken
From December 1 to 18, Maker.Street offers the public the opportunity to see the work of this year’s 32 Urban Crafters via the Vitrinexpo in the shop windows of the Lakensestraat/rue de Laeken, the Brussels artisan’s street.
On December the 15th the whole street will turn into one big celebration of all things crafts for the Urban Crafts Awards. Maker.Street will be turned into a 500m-long gallery opening night, with the heart of it around food craftsman Wim Ballieu’s Balls&Glory and the Quartier Général LKN, where we throw a pre-Christmas street party in the honor of this year’s Urban Crafts Awards winner.
TROPICANA / QG LKN / CRAFTERS HEADQUARTERS
From December 1st to 18, the QG (Quartier Général) LKN in the former bar Tropicana becomes the Urban Crafts Headquarters. It will be the working space and meeting point of Urban Crafts. It’s also the starting point for your visit to the Vitrinexpo. It’s the place where you can participate in Crafters’ workshops and meet the young makers to talk about their craft. The final program of the QG will be posted here soon.
