Walks - BRUSSELS: A HOTBED FOR ARTISTS
Culture houses in the city centre
Brussels was and is an attractive place for artists to work, and artists from Brussels are welcomed as guests in other parts of the world. Artists from other countries come and settle in the capital. The range of art and culture is overwhelming, and there is a continual interplay of influence between art and the city.
The Brussels art centres and culture houses often work together, across linguistic and funding boundaries. A number of them are within walking distance of each other.
A Bruksel guide takes you past various culture houses and introduces you to their history, their place in the city, their artistic ambitions and their relationship with artists and the public.
You can combine this with a visit to one of the culture houses itself: a tour behind the scenes or a performance or exhibition. If you wish, the walk can also start or end there.
