Tour Elentrik

Tour Elentrik is an art project in which 22 utility supply cabinets in Maasmechelen are being upgraded. The project is a collaboration between the municipality of Maasmechelen, art organization Treepack and residents of Maasmechelen.

The youth service of Maasmechelen started this project as a result of a survey that that youth council had conducted with the youth of Maasmechel. From this survey, the question often came back to a graffiti workshop.

The cupboards are largely painted by residents of Maasmechelen with an interest in art. Treepack prepared the participants of the project by giving a workshop. Here the participants learned the different techniques such as handling and templates. Another part of the cabinets are painted by professional artists including 2Dirty and Vexx. In February, residents of Maasmechelen were invited to think along with them about the location of the cupboards during a consultation moment. In the end they opted for the center of Maasmechelen. They can all be viewed within a walking route of approximately 5.5 km.
