Le Space is a laboratory and try-out room for the cultural centre of tomorrow. It is a haven for the new hybrid identity,who feels right at home amongst the super diversity of our cities’ multilayered population. Le Space serves as anintersection where artists, activists, ecological start-ups and cultural organizations can meet. Above all, Le Space is a safe space where respect and solidarity are the key values.
Le Space is centrally located in the Dansaert quarter, within walking distance of the festival venues at Kaaitheater, De Markten and De Vaartkapoen, and two metro stops from BOZAR. You can go there before or after visiting the festival for information, a drink, or to meet both artists and members of the audience. In collaboration with Le Space and under the title ‘Casa Bxl Tuesdays’ we focus during three evening talks on the themes; city, engagement and artist. Check the festival website for the complementary programme of informal 'late night' events in the intimate setting of Le Space.
