workshop TADA

Saturday 12th of November 2106, Quinten Foccaert conducted a workshop on architecture for the non-profit organization TADA in Brussels. TADA (Toekomst Atelier De L’ Avenir) is an organization that provides supplementary, voluntary, motivational and society-oriented education to children aged 10 to 14, who come from the most socioeconomically disadvantaged neighborhoods in Brussels.

By inspiring children in a safe environment that opens the door to the world, TADA seeks to empower its young participants and prevent demotivation and its negative consequences (such as learning fatigue, early school dropout, delinquency and unemployment). By encouraging an intergenerational and intercultural dialogue between different ‘worlds’ that wouldn’t meet under ordinary circumstances, TADA also seeks to contribute to a socially more cohesive Brussels.
