I have recently met Jennifer Hamilton and have been discussing with her ideas on opening a new creative space… one which I would sponsor. She has suggested that I chat with you – I would love to get your ideas on what is needed in the community… can we meet for a coffee or a tea sometime?

Merci, Monique..

merci pour votre question.

The Belgo Report est une publication écrit par moi, Bettina Forget, en anglais. C’est un blogue independant de l’édifice Belgo. J’éspère d’avoir les moyens un jour pour être capable d’embaucher un traducteur, mais pour le moment ce n’est pas possible.

Bien à vous,

thank you for your inquiry.
There is at least one new gallery moving into the Belgo, but I won’t comment on specifics until I have more precise info.
Stay tuned!

i think that this particular building has potential for a book or two.

thank you very much!!!

there is a lot of oral history about the Belgo, but as of yet no book or website dedicated to the Belgo’s history. From what people tell me, the building initially housed the cloth trade (apparently you can still find sewing needles in the floor boards). About 20 years ago the first galleries moved into the building, and it has now become a centre for contemporary art and dance. A friend told me that there used to be a huge indy record store in the basement), and before that the basement housed a bowling alley. I wished it was still there!

That’s all I know. You may want to sit with the building manager for a chat (if he has time), his office is on the 4th floor in the Belgo.

Good luck with your research,
