Festival Centre

Les Brigittines
Petite rue des Brigittines 1 
1000 Brussels

This year, we are happy to set up our Festival Centre at Les Brigittines, with its iconic 17th-century chapel and an extension in glass and weathered steel. The Festival Centre is our base, a meeting place where you can eat and drink, buy a book in our bookshop, listen to a talk, visit Amol K Patil's expo; where children can have fun during a workshop; where you can take part in our reading club or one of the language lessons as part of The School of Integration; or where you can dance the night away during our nightlife programme (apart from our opening and closing parties that will take place at Théâtre National). Besides these free activities, Les Brigittines is also the venue for artistic projects by Adam & Amina Seid Tahir, Midori Kurata, Basel Abbas & Ruanne Abou-Rahme, Ça marche and Victoria Lomasko.
