You are cordially invited to the presentation of our fountain, next weekend June 2 at 13.00 h. during Charlois Speciaal.

Long before there were people in Charlois, there was already water. Water is always on the move and always finds a way. Historically, fountains were gathering places that occupied a central place in village- and city life. Often they were installed to commemorate a great battle, a plague epidemic or some other historical event, donated by the municipality or a patron. Unfortunately, Charlois currently has no working fountain. Niek Hilkmann and Anne Kolbe want to remedy this shortcoming and temporarily give Charlois a mobile fountain that is not tied to a single place or interpretation. After an opening ceremony, held on the 2nd June around 13:00, next to Varia, space for everyday technology, the fountain can be seen during the weekends of the Charlois Speciaal festival, in search of new meaning and appreciation.
