About First Sight

First Sight, La Loge’s support community and programme, offers the opportunity to become an active member of La Loge and engage more deeply with its ideas, whilst meeting other like-minded people. Experimenting with a unique model of programming offered exclusively for supporters, First Sight offers exchange and apprenticeship through casual and precise encounters.

From intimate lectures to special visits, the curated series of activities, reserved for First Sight members only, creates a unique access to La Loge’s identity and attitude that likes to flirt with a certain form of curiosity while engaging with today’s culture. First Sight members are invited three times a season to take part in an exclusive activity directly linked to La Loge’s programme and vision.

How to become a member? 

Since La Loge operates within a small organisational economy, your contribution will immediately be felt. It will directly fund the production of our artistic and discursive programme, develop communication tools, protect and renovate the building and strengthen the organisation’s structure in general.

First Sight members make a donation granting them a yearly participation in a programme specially developed for La Loge’s supporters. 45% of your donation will be tax-deductible, thanks to the support of King Baudouin Foundation. A tax certificate will be delivered by KBF upon your donation.

Questions? 

If you are interested in joining First Sight but would like to know more about La Loge, visit the building or pass by for a chat around a coffee…please, feel free to be in touch.
