This Friday 26/01, a new festival will be launched – “Made in Bruxsel”, migrations that create the city. The first major expansion of Brussels took place at the time of the industrial revolution during the second half of the 19th century. The immigration of the new labour came from the Flemish and Walloon rural areas. And until today, this economic center which is Brussels, attracts thousands of Belgians from other regions.

The travelling festival « Made in Bruxsel » gathers researchers, civil society actors, artists and inhabitants of Brussels from January 2018 until May 2018. Throughout ten evenings that will take place in various Brussels cultural and artistic places, participants will debate and celebrate diversity, and those migrations that contributed to the development of our global city today. Every evening will offer the opportunity to discover Brussels artists, researchers and to listen to multiple testimonials of generations of residents of Brussels who grew up in this urban diversity.

This is the overview of the festival’s program:
