The festival gathers researchers, civil society actors, artists and inhabitants of Brussels from January 2018 until May 2018. There will be ten evenings of debates, looking at different types of migrations that contributed to the development of Brussels as a global city. These events will give voice to multiple testimonials of generations of residents of Brussels who grew up in this urban diversity.
Our Secretary General, Jean-Paul Judson, will be part of the workshop debate on Expats & Eurostars, taking place on the 15th of March from 6.30pm to 10.30pm at the Espace Senghor. More info here. We’ll be talking about the impact of the EU institutions on Brussels, and especially the life trajectory of many expats who came to Brussels and engaged with Hêbê. We’ll also discuss the importance of taking part in leisure activities in a city that attracts people mainly for work.
It’s also an opportunity to hear from the author of “Belgian Solutions”, David Helbich, and the Brussels Vocal Project. An afterwork apero will be held before the debate starts.
Discussions will take place mainly in French. We look forward to seeing you there!
