Pali pali, an accelerator of cultural, social and solidarity projects, has been selected by the CPAS of the city of Brussels to organise the temporary occupation of the Pacheco site over the next two years. The programme includes a "cultural and social third place" offering a variety of collective services and activities to the inhabitants of the surrounding neighbourhoods and beyond.
Pending major renovation work necessary for the creation of a group of housing units and collective services, the CPAS of Brussels has decided to make this site available for an innovative project with a strong social and cultural orientation, in line with the needs and aspirations of the neighbourhood's inhabitants. A call for projects was launched in early March. On this basis, the CPAS of the City of Brussels selected a project and appointed the manager-coordinator of the site.
The winner, Pali Pali, defines himself as an accelerator of cultural, social and solidarity projects. With a solid experience, he manages and activates places, accompanies projects and trains entrepreneurs. He recently developed the See U project in the former Ixelles barracks, the largest temporary occupation in Belgium, which brought together more than 100 project leaders on this site.
