Great community life also involves moments of celebration and sharing. But not without you! Support the Moskou Festival, which will allow you to discover young emerging artists through its eclectic programme.

In March 2017, a young team launched an outdoor community radio station aimed at discovering and sharing the local life of St-Gilles. That’s us: Radio Moskou! We operate on the Carré de Moskou, a stone’s throw from the Parvis de St-Gilles, a pretty but quite empty square that we are trying to liven up.

We launched our first Moskou Festival last year, aimed at prolonging this weekly time of conviviality and discovery that the show is all about. For one day, we showcased young emerging artists through a series of concerts, a photo exhibition, and a special radio show. We also organised participatory workshops and a football tournament! 1 year later, we would like to move up a gear: organise an independent, free festival, pay the artists, and involve more people: painters, visual artists, dancers, and other people from St-Gilles.

We want to involve residents in the re-appropriation of public spaces, and show that everyone can be a part of their community to see projects that reflect the community grow, and have a good time. But it’s not a simple task: we work with inspiring people who help us make this moment unique: local residents, architecture students to design the festival, graphic design students for our visual communication, budding chefs, etc.

Organising a festival is not without cost: there are many unavoidable expenses we have to cover to propose a quality event, made by residents, for residents.

That’s why we need you! The funds will be allocated to the rental of sound equipment, the remuneration of artists, catering for artists and volunteers, SABAM fees, and other miscellaneous costs (equipment, scenery, transport, etc.).

By helping us, you will be helping to create an independent, inclusive, free and community-based project.
