Where? Kaaitheater, Brussels

What is it about?

“Is Brussels complex? Absolutely. Administratively, culturally, socially, economically, and demographically Brussels is anything but easy. But this complexity does not mean that you cannot understand or learn to understand Brussels. The sixth Night of Knowledge on Brussels will again explore this urban district and all its varied dimensions. Twenty researchers and Brussels experts share their knowledge through pertinent, 14-minute presentations. You can expect accessible and relevant knowledge about Brussels, peppered with debates and music.”

Also Media Clusters Brussels’ researchers, Ike Picone and Marlen Komorowski, will present insights about the future role of the media for Brussels and give a presentation titled “Welke media voor (welk) Brussel?”.
