Charleroi decided to turn its industrial sites dating from the 19th century into fascinating artistic stages: a wonderful way to show how dynamic the city is and give the visitors a unique experience.
The forges in the former factories of La Providence have been reconverted into an urban centre dedicated to popular, social and alternative culture:
- rock music
- electronic music
- graphic and digital art
- industrial apéritifs...
Four spaces, each with its own vibe
- The Cathedral, the entrance hall of the plant, serves as a permanent exhibition space
- The forges will host industrial apéritifs and exhibitions
- The Rockerill is a concert hall big enough for an audience of 250 persons
- The Grand Salle (Large Room) is perfect for larger events and exhibitions
