Imagine that you are having a drink in your favorite bar and you find a flyer about an exhibition you didn’t know about. You visit the exhibition and there you see a poster about a concert that seems interesting. Isn’t it great to discover new things? At the Brussels Creative Forum you will find all the info about every cultural organisation in Brussels in one place! This is what’s on the program:

  • culture market where all these organisations in the field of architecture, cinema, music, theatre, visual art, literature and even comedy will present their program for the next season.
  • Conferences  about various subjects, like street art, gentrification, tourism, public space and creative industries, all related to Brussels (don’t forget to sign up in advance).
  • book market where you can find every book about Brussels!

For the hungry ones there will be several Food Trucks present, like SINstreetfood ! The event is free and you can even win tickets for cultural events. 

I’m definitely going to visit the Creative Form to get inspiration for future blogposts about cultural events in Brussels. If you can’t go the weekend of 28 & 29 August, I will keep you updated regularly 🙂 .

If you are in Brussels this weekend, there is a great festival @ Tour & Taxis on 7 & 8 August 2015!  A few years ago, on a sunny day, we were walking past the Park Cinquantenaire when we heard some really good reggae music. There was a free party going on in the middle of the park, organized by Reggaebus Brussels. A few years later, they moved to Tour & Taxis in order to expand & attract more people. If you like reggae & dub music, you will like this party!
