Rojo en si ♭ is an artistic association that supports cultural and linguistic diversity, as well as women’s and children’s rights.

We offer various artistic and linguistic workshops and coaching sessions such as writing, reading, creating plays, making videos, and participating in language clubs. In this way, we aim to spark artistic and cultural curiosity.

What do we want?

Our goal is to understand our reality by embracing history while transforming it. We aim to reduce the macroscopic and increase the microscopic, in order to refocus on ourselves without forgetting to take into consideration the world around us.

In a constantly changing world, we focus on the synergies that are built between visual arts, generations, and immigrants.

We can do this at home or in our offices and are very mobile! We offer workshops and coaching sessions in theaters, cultural centers, museums, as well as in neighborhood houses transformed into artistic stages, bars adapted into exhibition or meeting spaces.

Rojo en si ♭ aims to raise awareness among residents of different neighborhoods about arts, languages, and the rights of women and children.

Rojo en si ♭’s History

A non-profit organization

It was in 2005, in the Venezuelan favelas, that Katiuska created the association, starting her adventures in forum and community theater. The first objective was to design a program to raise awareness among young people about fiction and dreaming, to give them keys to deal with the oppressive and difficult situations of their daily lives.

After a few years, in 2008, the association was named « Salto Arte » and supported artists and painters in difficulty, allowing them to exhibit in itinerant places such as cafes and restaurants, or for example the corridors of the French Alliances Institute in Caracas.

It was in Paris in 2011 that Katiuska created a space for conversation in her native language, Spanish. She then decided to design theater workshops in Spanish, alongside her studies in theater, cinema, and French languages. It was actually her university and conservatory classmates who were her first students.

In 2012, in Marseille, under the same name of Salto Arte, she offered workshops for creating plays and writing in French and Spanish, with the aim of offering language learning through the practice of art.

It was in 2020, when arriving in the Belgian capital under the name Rojo en Si bémol, that the non-profit organization consolidated in the transmission and teaching of languages, women’s and children’s rights, through the arts. Afterwards, students, friends, and other people convinced of the benefits of this project decided to create a space for conversation and exchange with local artists studying languages. The idea is to create a place where everyone can exchange, confront their ideas and debate with others, in order to create alternatives for reflections and concrete actions.

Thus was born Rojo en si bémol, a non-profit organization with an engaged, friendly, and adventurous group of artists. Through this association, we aim to create a show, an exhibition, a reading of contemporary authors or other each season, where languages and art intertwine, in collaboration with various authors, actors, painters, videographers, professionals or amateurs residing in Belgium.

Currently, the goal is to offer multidisciplinary, multigenerational, plurilingual art workshops, courses, and stages for and with citizens. We are constantly looking for places to make artistic interventions, whether in schools, prisons, retirement homes, universities, local communities, or businesses, in order to give people the desire to discover books, authors, art forms, and languages.

Rojo en si♭, a significant name

This name plays with paradoxes, animating passionate and contradictory feelings: love / anger, sensuality / sexuality, courage / danger, ardor / prohibition…

The choice of colors is also not insignificant, as it allows to shake up feelings. Indeed, the color red is said to be warm, energetic, penetrating and in a certain way reassuring. This warm color therefore does not leave indifferent and that is its strength: it stirs up passions, whether positive or negative.

Positive meaning: love, passion, warmth, sexuality, ardor, triumph

Negative meaning: anger, prohibition, danger

Representation: blood, fire, lava, plants (tomato, poppy, strawberry)

Project Management

Multidisciplinary and multilingual artist.

« I would like to help all women, men, and children through stimulating exchanges and sharing that directly impact their approach to life. I enjoy contributing to the development of individuals’ potential. I began teaching somewhat incidentally and discovered a true affinity for pedagogy and immense pleasure in contributing to personal growth. For over ten years, I have taken the initiative to create projects that are personally daring: opera, associations, foundation, scriptwriting and directing, and short film production. Gradually, my workshops evolved into coaching that caters to all audiences. »

Life Coaching


Life coaching, also known as personal development coaching, individual coaching, or life coaching, is the process of supporting individuals in their personal or professional lives to help them succeed in achieving a specific goal or project. It involves the emergence and implementation of success strategies to define and reach objectives.

Why pursue life coaching?

Engaging in life coaching can help individuals overcome doubts or fears, regain confidence and self-esteem, better manage emotions, resolve relationship conflicts, rediscover joy and motivation, identify their self-worth, and experience many other benefits.

Life Coaching Services

Personalized Coaching

The coaching services offered by Rojo en Si Bemol come in various forms, tailored to meet your specific needs. Whether it’s artistic, linguistic, or life coaching, the goal of the provided support is self-discovery and unlocking a connection between oneself and others through creative expression.

Indeed, this connection in life and exchange ensures a sense of well-being through workshops that offer a creative space for individuals looking to improve their self-expression. It is a process of self-discovery, embracing one’s sensitivity, emotions, strengths, and weaknesses, as lack of self-confidence can be one of the obstacles to achieving your goals. Engaging in our coaching services will help you identify and address the root causes of this lack of assurance, regain self-confidence, and assert yourself.

Service A

Creating awareness of automatic reactions

Service B

Exploring beauty, curiosity, vitality with conscious awareness

Service C

Experiencing the benefits of mindfulness


Artistic Coaching


The primary purpose of artistic coaching is to uncover talents. Acting as an ally or success partner, an artistic coach intervenes in all areas of the art industry to assist artists who are in need. This includes enhancing their potential and achieving their goals. In their approach, the presence of an artistic coach serves to make the coachee aware of their unique qualities, values, and strengths.

Why pursue artistic coaching?

The main role of an artistic coach is to accompany the coachee. This can involve personal development, teaching them to listen to their needs, make better decisions, or question themselves.

With a focus on career development, this assistance is also valuable in defining one’s artistic identity and creative potential. The tasks of an artistic coach may include advice on improving stage performance, creating an action plan, better organization, or taking action so that the artist becomes the driver of their own project. It is the responsibility of the artistic coach to guide the artistic energy of their client in the right direction. If the artist is hesitant to start due to fear of the unknown or has achieved limited results so far, the artistic coach helps identify any barriers and provides the necessary tools to take action and succeed.

Artistic Coaching Services

Writing Services

In Spanish or in French

Writing is about making all kinds of choices. Reflecting on the arrangement of words, stepping outside oneself, considering potential readers. These operations don’t happen in the initial draft of the writing, but it is essential to apply them.

Writing is about revisiting our production and analyzing it to envision its potential transformation, enriching it, making it more complex through reduction, expansion, transcoding… Finding the right balance between too much and too little, knowing the norms and inventing one’s own.

Writing is about enriching our relationship with time, working on the memory of things: generating beginnings, traversing journeys and analyzing them, revisiting history to better understand our origins, our roots, and imagine more.

The time of writing production

  • Friendly atmosphere.
  • A writing prompt given by the facilitator (literary texts, newspaper articles, photos, objects, music, etc.).
  • Individual reading of our writings and sometimes collective reading.

The time for feedback

The workshops conclude with constructive feedback on the writings, where the facilitator analyzes, comments, highlights, suggests rewriting paths, and instills confidence in the writer to go further.

Each writer freely expresses their opinion.


  • Creating a story by writing in the target language.
  • Stimulating imagination and sensory memory.
  • Various improvisation frameworks.
  • Placing fictional characters in their immediate, poetic, and/or pragmatic environment.
  • Finding states of urgency and « accidents » that punctuate the writing.
  • Developing one’s personality through writing.
  • Gaining greater self-confidence.
  • Getting to know oneself through writing.
  • Producing creative texts.

Module 1

Module 1 allows each individual to develop their personality through writing, gain better self-confidence, self-knowledge, produce creative texts, explore various literary genres, stimulate creativity, share your texts with others, receive feedback, and enrich yourself through these exchanges, ultimately evolving in your own writing.

Module 2

With Module 2, you continue exploring literary genres that were not covered in Module 1. You apply what you have learned to enrich your texts, invent characters, universes, understand the perspectives’ stakes, and discover the pleasure of « rewriting. »

Module 3

This module builds upon the knowledge acquired in Modules 1 and 2, with the discovery of other literary genres, revisiting several of your characters that will come to life over several consecutive workshops. You will delve deeper into rewriting some of your texts written in the workshops. You will leave with a topic that you can pursue on your own or continue with Module 4, « collective manuscript follow-up. »

Module 4

Collective Manuscript Follow-up

Do you want to write a narrative with multiple characters, spanning several « chapters, » but don’t know where to start? This workshop is for you! Over 10 Saturdays, totaling five hours each, you will find your subject, build an atmosphere around one or more characters, and bring them to life in various situations across multiple « chapters. » Each project will be the subject of discussions and sharing within the group.


Reading Services

Reading Aloud

The sessions begin with a physical and vocal warm-up to work on breathing and voice. Each participant brings one or two texts of their choice. During the session, excerpts from these texts are read, once or multiple times. They are then commented on by the workshop facilitator, aiming to clarify the individual’s understanding of their reading.


The goal is to teach the student to master a range of reading strategies, to refine and expand throughout their life. Once they read fluently, we will explore strategies such as making connections between the text and personal experiences, anticipating what comes next, interpreting the implicit meaning of the text, summarizing, etc.


  • Explicit and functional teaching of reading in Spanish & French.
  • Opportunity to work with authentic texts, literature albums that enhance motivation through their emotional aspect.
  • Reading and writing are approached together, reinforcing the learning of both skills.
  • Pedagogical freedom for the teacher, not bound by a predefined curriculum.

Our method in brief…

  • Engage in discussions with participants and enrich their vocabulary to facilitate the learning of reading.
  • Strengthen phonemic awareness. The student should be able to break down a heard word into its successive phonemes.
  • Connect reading and writing (which materializes the relationship between oral and written language). Copying and dictation alone are not enough; it is important to have children produce short, free sentences or imitate a given structure from an early age.

Learning materials and resources

  • To facilitate written production, gradually create a word bank displayed in the classroom, organized thematically or alphabetically. Break down each word into syllables, observe the spelling… High-frequency and often challenging sight words should be included first. Each person can also have a personalized « word box » with affectively meaningful contents.
  • Choose various types of texts: narrative, informative, cultural…
  • Offer different exercises involving composition and variation of words and syllables using manipulative letters, which are more tangible and engage kinesthetic memory.
  • Create reading games to make the learning process more motivating and therefore more effective.
  • Familiarize oneself with different writing variations (cursive, printed…).


Theatre Services

For whom?

Our theatre services are available for children and adults residing in Belgium.

Our workshops aim to be places of meeting, discussion, and enrichment for both young and old.

New life, new country, and sometimes a new continent, new culture, and sometimes a new language, new school, new job, sometimes the first school, new education system; all of this in a situation of uncertainty regarding the possibility of staying in the country. All of this can create worries or isolation, and theatre is a great way to connect with others.

The sessions are structured around warm-up exercises, improvisation games, and interpretation.

Beyond acting techniques, the classes also aim to allow students to « compose » with their own personalities…

Skills acquired at the end of our workshops

Linguistic Coaching


Linguistic coaching is a coaching method aimed at helping individuals improve their language skills, whether in their native language or in a foreign language.

Linguistic coaching focuses on verbal and written communication skills, as well as fluency in using language in various professional and personal contexts. Linguistic coaches often work with individuals or groups to help them refine their grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation, comprehension, and written expression.

Who hasn’t ever thought about leaving everything behind and starting over? Disappearing from one’s continent to completely rebuild one’s life? In this play, the world is divided into two continents: Here and Elsewhere. Among the thousands of people wishing to obtain the Icirois nationality, only four have been chosen to participate in the Nationalities Dinner. The candidates will try to convince the hostess that they are the most worthy to live on this continent. They must abide by strict rules where feelings, emotions, and identity memories are forbidden.

Katiuska addresses the audience, making them witnesses to a poetic and tyrannical dystopia of the immigrants’ journey and their sacrifices, « because the life of an immigrant fluctuates in emptiness, back and forth, nothingness, and emptiness. » Katiuska Landaeta was born in May 1986 in Caracas. A young Franco-Venezuelan writer, she wrote her first play, « Cul-de-sac, » where she speaks about assimilation in immigration.
