Brussels - Whose City Is It Anyway? 

Wednesday 26 June | 7-10pm | Pay What You Can
Rich Mix 35-47 Bethnal Green Road, London E1 6LA 

A city made up of different communities, languages, governments and neighbourhoods. A city on the border of two language groups taken over by the vast political and bureaucratic operation of the EU and struggling to integrate its newer migrant residents. We’ll look at the role of the city as a cosmopolitan interconnected hub and who it belongs to through short films, poetry and architecture with exceptional guest speakers and performers from Brussels and the UK.
