La Tricoterie: "Link Factory"
La Tricoterie wants to be a "Link Factory": a meeting place where various disciplines and audiences can meet, in a spirit of exchange and emulation.
That is why our cultural programme (concerts, plays, exhibits ...) is combined with a "civic" programme (debates, conferences, intergenerational workshops, philosophy café ...). We also offer our spaces for rent for professional of private events.
When it comes to financing, La Tricoterie adopted an innovative economic model, based on the principle of "communicating vessels", with a combination of profitable and non-profitable events. We alternate private or corporate events with socio-cultural activities, funded both by our own means and occasional public subsidies.
La Tricoterie was founded both as a cooperative (Théodore SCRL) and a non-profit organisation (La Tricoterie asbl). It offers a participatory model for all potential "tricoteurs" who wish to partake in this adventure with us in order to realise a true civic, sustainable investment (not just patronage or sponsoring).
