Squatfabrik

Depuis le mois de mai, le "Kufa Summer Bar" accueille diverses petites manifestations culturelles : DJ sets, concerts acoustiques, marché des créateurs… Et quelques mètres plus loin, dans les anciens locaux de la Keramikfabrik laissés vacants depuis quelques mois, nous vous invitons à découvrir la SQUATFABRIK, nouveau projet de la Kufa qui n’est pas sans rappeler son passé de squat artistique !

De juin à septembre 2020, une dizaine d’artistes locaux vont se relayer dans ce grand espace inoccupé. Ils ont carte blanche et leurs portes sont grandes ouvertes ! Si vous sirotez une bière au Kufa Summer Bar, n’hésitez donc pas à aller découvrir leur atelier éphémère, leurs oeuvres en cours de réalisation ou encore achevées…

Du 31 août au 11 septembre, la Squatfabrik accueillera les artistes Claire Parsons et Rick Tonizzo.

>> Horaires d’ouverture : lundi, mercredi et vendredi, de 17h à 20h.
>> Leur «Get-Out !» se tiendra le vendredi 11 septembre, à 18h.
