Public initiative 2017

  • Parcours Street Art

    The Street Art Itinerary was launched by the Deputy Mayor for Culture in 2013. Similar to the Comics Art Itinerary already well known in Brussels, the aim behind it is to develop Brussels and international talents in the different Brussels quarters and bring contemporary art into the public space. Residents or tourists always take pleasure in discovering a wall fresco on one of their walks. A hundred works of Street Art are today listed on the website. This site is regularly updated, with between 5 and 10 works added each year. The site proposes ballads themed by quarter with a geolocation app. It also offers information about artists and about how the works are produced. Follow the guide !

  • Kiosks in the parks

    The project developed by Brussels Environment consisted of the installation of five kiosks with a small catering business and café in various parks in the Brussels Capital region. These kiosks, open throughout the summer period from 1 July to 30 September, are aimed at users of green spaces, people of Brussels together with Belgian and international visitors. They also seek to create a social link between users, enhance local initiatives in sustainable food and showcase the green heritage of Brussels through a unifying and enjoyable activity in a place where design and sustainable development can be grasped in complete simplicity, around some delicious food or a nice drink!

  • Citizen Lights

    Citizen Lights is the light festival that brightens up late winter in Schaerbeek. Unique for its genuine dimension of participation, festivity, family and respect for the environment, for one weekend it took over the area around Avenue Louis Bertrand, a famous artery in the commune. This first edition (2, 3 & 4 February 2017) was magical and poetic: installations by local and international artists rivalling for beauty and originality, a lantern parade bringing together schools and associations, light casings for remarkable buildings, window lighting of the most beautiful houses, carriage rides... Its inclusive feature has been recognised and appreciated by the press, who have even spoken about the "only light festival in Europe" (JT RTBF). All thanks to Citizen Lights, Schaerbeek has developed a positive appeal during and beyond the event and looks forward to your visit on 23 & 24 February 2018 to take part in the second edition of the festival.
