  • BEST PRACTICE

    MIXITY BEST PRACTICE SMALL ASSOCIATIONS

  • Medex (musée éphémère de l'exil) - Musée éphémère de l'exil
    In October 2014 we founded a temporary museum that travels and shares the personal stories of those who have been forced to migrate by highlighting their stories through art distilled in different forms (performances, poetry, illustration, writing, music, video, theatre). People get acquainted with one another through writing workshops and reflecting together about the creation of an interactive exhibition.

  • Coordination HoLeBi Bruxelles (CHB) - Rainbows United
    The "Rainbows United" project is an initiative that welcomes, supports, informs, and raises awareness about lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and intersex asylum-seekers. The project is free on a voluntary basis.

  • Pianofabriek citylab - Citylab in Superdiversiteit

    CITYLAB IN SUPER-DIVERSITY:
    - Has served as an urban incubator for young and diverse Brussels talent and supports hybrid spaces in which art, activism, politics and culture become one.
    - By bridging gaps between people, it contributes to an open, learning society founded on solidarity, in which every citizen can find and renegotiate his own role.
    - Arose from the piano factory’s diversity function and was transformed from a programme for diverse groups into a programme by diverse groups.
    - Has an urban focus and supports young creatives with intercultural roots and ties to the (in)formal Brussels artistic and cultural scene.

  •  Cultureghem - Cultureghem Cultivating Urban Space
    Cureghem has no fewer than 170 different nationalities. Diversity, hyper-diversity, super-diversity: these are labels we consider 'normal'. We choose to connect people through their daily needs, without regard to origin or cultural background: playing and eating. Our originality is our simplicity. The past few years, our place of business, which is not too far from the Grand Place, was endlessly branded a NO GO ZONE. We turned this around, and together with NV Abattoir - but also with the neighbourhood itself – it has now become a MUST GO ZONE.

  • Muziekpublique asbl - Muziekpublique, glocal music for glocal people
    Muziekpublique aims to represent, promote, and preserve the traditional world music and dance present in Brussels from all cultures with a goal of fostering interactions between audiences and artists. Musicians from Brussels are at the heart of our work. To achieve this goal, Muziekpublique rests on three pillars in constant interaction:
    - organising concerts and festivals (100/year)
    - world music academy (40 weekly courses)
    - CD label (8 CDs published and marketed internationally)

  • Toestand - Allee Du Kaai
    Allee Du Kaai is the temporary use of empty warehouses along the Materialenkaai in Brussels. The project's goal is to make people aware of the location and anticipate the creation of a park. The temporary use is coordinated by Toestand vzw, which sees this as an opportunity to bring people together who would otherwise not normally collaborate. The project houses young people, old people, people with a psychiatric background, hippies, the undocumented, artists and entrepreneurs.
