In een stad die haarzelf doldraait met pop-up podia en life-style festivals doet de OCCII woeste pogingen een vrijplaats te zijn en blijven voor artistiek experiment, eigen initiatief en actie. Maar de tanden van de tijdgeest knagen ook aan de randen van het OCCII imperium;
vrijwilligers blijven minder lang hangen en organisatoren maken kortere series. Verbondenheid, inzet en toewijding zijn de ruggengraat van een onafhankelijk muzieknetwerk en het is belangrijk om van elkaar te weten wat er speelt, zowel in OCCII als op andere ‘stations’ van dit ondergrondse culturele spoorwegstelsel. Vraagtekens hebben altijd al de voorkeur boven uitroeptekens bij OCCII dus vandaar deze oproep aan allen die los en vast aan de OCCII hangen:

Kom meedenken en meepraten op 11 mei over de OCCII van nu en straks:

I. subsidie vs DIY? – hoe en wat met steun van de staat
II. krakershol of hipsterhok? – wat is de OCCII identiteit en wie bepaalt dat?
III. Book Your Own Fucking Life – Een zaal als netwerkgenerator voor je band en scene, werkt dat nog?
IV. Hoeveel Facebook Boost heeft een vrijplaats nodig? – hoe promoot je een plek die nergens bij past?

In a city overflowing with lifestyle festivals and pop-up podia, OCCII tries hard to survive as a free space open for artistic experimentation, self-will and action. But the Zeitgeist is swirling around in OCCII too; volunteers stay shorter, organizers make shorter series. Solidarity, endeavor and dedication are the backbone of an independent music network and it’s important to know what’s happening in OCCII and other ‘stations’ of independent music of this underground cultural railway. Question marks have always been more preferred than exclamation marks so that’s why we want to call out to you, all people closely connected to OCCII:

Come join us and think about the future and the now of DIY-booking and venues.

– Subsidy vs DIY – how to deal with government support
– Squatters cave or hipster shed? What’s the OCCII identity? Determined by who?
– Book Your Own Fucking Life – A venue as a network generator for your band and scene, does that still work?
– How much Facebook boost does a cultural free haven need? – How to promote a place that doesn’t fit?
