27 Feb 2015
Place: 

Huis van Culturen en Sociale Samenhang, Sint-Jans-Molenbeek / Maison de la culture et de la cohésion sociale de Molenbeek-Saint-Jean

During a series of lunch seminars, Bral, Brussels Academy and Crosstalks want to reflect on the future of urban commons, more specifically the commons in Brussels. The lunch seminars are open to everybody. They are meant to exchange knowledge and experiences on the different initiatives in Brussels, but also to reflect on the social importance of these initiatives: are they merely a useful form of leisure activities, or do they really lead to a new economy? And in that case, how is the relation with the prevailing economic and social order?

Programme: 

12:00-14:00 - Rik Pinxten (author of Kleine Revoluties) on the value of bottom-up initiatives + kick-off of BRAL's Selfcity Project
