Flemish MP Elisabeth Mollmann and Brussels MP Lotte Stopes will soon take part in Gruen’s cultural protest. They ask Flemish Prime Minister Jan Jambon (N-VA), who is also responsible for culture, to develop a long-term vision.
“We urge Prime Minister Jambon to finally work on a long-term plan, which takes into account, for example, auditorium capacity and ventilation standards, rather than shutting down everything at a time, from the Sportpaleis to a small theater of 100 people,” Muleman said.
Now that the omicron appears to be dominant, there is once again uncertainty. That is why a logical, explainable and predictable policy is needed right now. Muleman and Stubbs believe Gambon has let down the culture sector here. “While the strip is slowly being stifled, Jambon has been watching with his hands in his pockets. This is really horrific,” says Muleman.
“The mental impact of the arbitrariness in politics is enormous: working for months on a performance and then suddenly having to cancel everything: it is always a huge blow to both the artists and the audience,” says Stubbs, a member of parliament in Brussels. director. She points out that the “yo-yo policy” and the “hasty” decision to close culture halls and cinemas will continue to waver financially. Groen also advocates additional support measures.
