I am currently considering a move to Brussels in the next few months. Seeing that my options for moving around Europe will be far more limited after October 31st (if that is the date we leave - who knows at this point…) It strikes me as a sensible place to settle, the Belgium government having guaranteed the right to stay of existing UK residents - I also really enjoyed the city the few times I have been there. It’s like Paris, but friendly.
The other side of this move would also be an opportunity to do some more collaborative work around Edgeryders initiatives… Websites are nice, but I think there’s room for more collective media projects including interviews, videos, photography, pop up installations… I don’t know yet, but my sense is that there would be a more insightful quality to the work produced by being there, especially in the run up to the festival.
I have lived most of my life in Europe and consider it home - the prospect of returning to the UK is a bit of an alien concept for me. So if there is a space available at The Reef, or even recommendations for a starting point for the first month or two, I would greatly appreciate any help to get a footing there
