I was just curious on whether squattets occupying a public building are afforded the same tenant protection as like houses.

What are your thoughts on holding a popup event in such a building. Is it feasible or a felony waiting to happen?

I guess if the space you use to squat gets used frequently there'll be plenty of motivation to get rid of you. If you find some long lost broom closet you might just get away for a while!

I just want to get in, have a big event and then get out.

What about a simultaneous art show/concert? I think it would be sick to have an event like that in an abandoned building. Im sure there are established squats out there that have the resources for such events though.

Dude that's even a sicker idea! I like the idea of an established squat but I'd hate to completely blow up somebody's spot with a promoted event. Definitely a concert though.

Haha no worries! Art shows are cool. Whereabouts are ya thinking of having this?

I'm not exactly sure. Just beginning an idea. I'd need to go where theres alot artists or a place where they'd travel too.

I mean not every one would be brave enuff to exhibit in an illegal show.

Yo,
Where I'm from, the squats that would host art events and concerts and stuff would last maximum a couple of months, in general. However, the guys who were running them were well aware of that, so they kept having those shows until they got kicked out. Basically that was when legal action against them as taken....

I probably don't know the squatting scene in your area, but I'd say if you are able to hook up with folks that have already hosted events, there's a good chance they would let you have you show/concert/whatev's
