The film night at WORM back in May was packed out. As promised, here are the films which were screened. These have all been carefully ripped off the internets and subtitled in english. Much respect to all the original film makers and also to Cineac / Pietje Bell Rotterdam, which was great local community television (lots on youtube!). Unfortunately it lost its funding in 2015.
Credits are given where appropriate, if something is wrong please leave a comment and we will fix it at the next available opportunity.

Making Room: Cultural Production in Occupied Spaces (edited by Alan W.Moore and Alan Smart) is an anthology of texts on art, media and aesthetic practice in the context of squatting, occupation and urban space activism. It includes pieces by activist researchers working between the academy and the movements they write about, journalistic first-person narratives by squatters, original photography, and interviews with artists, theorists and activists involved in struggles over urban space and creative production in the city.
Regardless of whether or not attempts to manage migration will effective, there are migrants or refugees around who need some form of housing or shelter now. This involves informal solutions that directly or indirectly tie into the decades-old European tradition of urban squatting.
May 20th, 19:30, Lecture Hall Polak 0-06 (Polak Building, Campus Woudestein, Burgemeester Oudlaan 50, Rotterdam).
March 26 21.00 – 06.00
Stieltjesstraat 38, 3071JX Rotterdam, Netherlands
The conference proper will be two days of discussion (Friday/Saturday) at the Poortgebouw where members of SqEK present their work on squatting. Alongside this, there will be some public events such as a film night at WORM, a seminar at the Erasmus University, a debate at V2 and a bicycle tour of squatted Rotterdam.
A SqEK initiative to database squatted social centres in different European cities has resulted in an online mapping project. The squats of Rotterdam which had a public function are located on this map. It’s possible to make additions or corrections!
Aside from the Poortgebouw, where we will be based, the film night on Thursday will be at WORM and the seminar on Friday evening will be at the Erasmus University.
