[…] This book is a wheel – a wheel of kinship. Place it vertically in front of you, open its pages and spread them evenly around its spine. The wheel of kinship is circling around an essential working field of our society – the field of the arts. […]

The Fair Kin Arts Almanac is made with the voices of more than 130 artists, writers, and activists spinning their thoughts and experiences into 12 chapters around a year. Surprising perspectives, recipes, sound practices, and reflections around ecology, parenthood, the need to rest in a life that never stops, the urgency for space and infrastructure for artists, redistribution of resources, accessibility of the sector, artistic involvement in politics and much more.


Like the first edition, the FAIR KIN ARTS ALMANAC is meant to make us speak and think out loud about urgent social topics. Together. In the coming months, SOTA will therefore (co)organise a series of events around the topics we address.

  • SOTA Foyers at the Beursschouwburg (14 Sep, 12 Oct, 02 Nov)
  • Fair Practice, un dialogue durable – Fair Practice, een duurzame dialoog, in co-production with La Fap (01 Oct in NICC in Antwerp; 19 Oct in Liège, Nov in Kiosk in Ghent, Dec in Vecteur in Charleroi)

A detailed program will be announced on SOTA’s website.
