Berchem-Sainte-Agathe or how to reconcile city and nature


16/09/2017 - 17/09/2017

Through a collection of maps and photographs, this exhibition will present an overview of the current state of nature in Berchem-Sainte-Agathe/Sint-Agatha-Berchem: its gems (Zavelenberg, Wilder Wood, Kattebroek, Hogenbos) and its hidden treasures (wetlands on Rue de l’Azur/Azuurstraat, the reed bed on Rue des Chats/Kattestraat, Zavelenberg Hill, etc.) Its central theme will be “past, present and future”, both historical and prospective: why did these natural areas escape the development planned for them? Who looks after them today and based on what principles? What plans are there for maintaining and enhancing them for future generations?

In cooperation with Berchem-Sainte-Agathe/Sint-Agatha-Berchem municipal administration.
