Besides toursupport and catering we at mom's HQ are buzzy bees... We create our own events or co-produce them. So, if you are searching for support to change your event into a smoothly running machine you know where to find us.
Mom’s Living Room evolved from our catering stand. In this living room, we organise acoustic sessions with numerous international artists. We'll transform a container into a cosy living room which fits the warm personality of Just Like Your Mom.
Expect this unique concept to be displayed at various European festivals throughout spring and summer. Big and small artists perform short acoustic sessions in our Mom-styled living room. Every session will be recorded and published online (here as well!) so you can watch and listen to your favorite artists perform.
Next to doing catering we also aim to educate people about veganism by giving lectures and workshops at a wide range of events. We do this because veganism is a much needed contribution to environment, climate and the way we ‘consume’. This philosophy is also reflected in our DIY-work ethic. We aim to act responsibly towards our future and offer a tasty, sustainable and a (from our point of view) very important alternative by doing so!
A few years ago we started with doing cooking workshops for large groups. We did a workshop together with venues and bands, where we created an intimate atmosphere. It involves 2 steps. Band and teacher give a workshop to a dozen people. Band and students eat together. After dinner, the band plays a few songs. This is a great way to spend an afternoon creating food, music and fun.
Since a couple of years we organize a vegan and environmental friendly haven during Ghent's annual festival . Just Like Your Mom provides vegan food and at the same time creates a space next to our stall for NGO’s to promote their activities. The NGO's that have been using this space over the last few years are: EVA vzw, Natuurpunt, Gents Milieu Front, Friends of the Earth Belgium, JAAN Indonesia, The Black Fish, Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, Bite Back and more...
Besides these 2 stalls we also run a restaurant called Cyclus in the Baudelopark. Here we work together with Trefpunt VZW to create a restaurant with sitting area for 150 people in a recycled enviroment. We provide a la carte menus.
In 2015 and 2016, we went to Milan Design Week to set up a restaurant area. This event in Italy is the most prestigious design event in the world. We were working together with Studiomie (a Ghent based design agency) to create a high quality food and design environment at the Ventura Lambrate area.
Because road transportation is very pollutive, we chose for an alternative way to get our own and other people’s goods to Italy. That’s why the equipment was travelling by train. This emits 50 times less CO2 compared to road travel.
A few years ago, we collaborated with Macbeth Footwear to create a small DIY haven at the Groezrock festival in Belgium. This in the form of co-organizing the Macbeth factor that grew fast into a very succesfull bandcontest. For a few years the Macbeth Stage was a not to be missed stage at Groezrock.
