Doel is situated in the port of Antwerp and originally a smalltown on a former peninsula. It must be clear: though there is a cigarette-vendingmachine and three kinds of hospitality-industry-opportunities (the Windmill, Doel 5 and the society of the port of doel ‘de Spuikom’) to stay in Doel is not possible on a self-sufficient way; so if you come there, take enough for your livelyhood. Except a public toilet and a flowing water, you will find a cosy meeting of the local resistance, every Sunday afternoon, in the old schoolbuilding (de Doolen, Engelsesteenweg 8).
The center of the village is ‘our’ square, with three totempoles on it, across from the former Police Station. Though camping is officialy not allowed, if done with care and a littlebit out of sight no one will bother. The place is not a big squat; entering the dozins of empty houses is strictly forbidden and not appreciated by the local residents. But in the future it will be possible to get a house there. We are working on a place for artist in residence.
