Les Halles (Grande Halle) - Koninklijke Sinte-Mariastraat 22a,1030 Schaarbeek
Key notes and panel discussion with Srećko Horvat and Chloé Mikolajczak on the future of Brussels and its role as a capital of imagination and ideas.
Brussels has long been seen as merely an administrative center, but it has the potential to be much more. Imagine a Brussels that goes beyond its current role and becomes a dynamic cultural capital, offering transformative ideas to all its inhabitants. This panel discussion at the Brussels 2030 Summar Assembly explores how arts and culture can be integrated with urban transitions to pave the way for a different, more equal, and inclusive Europe.
Whether you're an artist, a student, an urban planner, or simply someone who cares about the future of Europe: join the conversation and help shape the future of Brussels.
