Three BOZAR projects are competing for a visit.brussels Award 2017, each in their respective categories. There’s the BOZAR Electronic Arts Festival (BEAF) in the category of Evening Experience 2016, the Picasso. Sculptures exhibition in the Most Noted Exhibition 2016 category and finally the BOZAR Brasserie is up for the Best Gastronomic Concept 2016 award.

Not forgetting the presence of Difference Day, a project co-produced by, amongst others, BOZAR, the VUB and the Evens Foundation, which is in the running for the International Congress & Fair Award 2016.

Each year, the visit.brussels Awards ceremony rewards projects which actively enhance the influence of Brussels. The goal is to highlight actions which contribute to improving both the visitor experience and the international reputation of the Capital.

During the first selection phase, the public voted for three projects in each of the nine categories. Now it’s up to the jury to designate the winners on the basis of five criteria: the project’s impact on the international influence of Brussels, the impact on tourism in Brussels, the originality and sustainability of the project and what has been done to make it accessible to people with a handicap. The prize-giving ceremony will take place on 30 March 2017, during the visit.brussels Awards & Networking Night.

Thanks to the public for voting, and for getting the different BOZAR projects onto the shortlist! Fingers crossed!

    One year after the attacks of March 22nd, BOZAR invites to come together around an artistic programme to reflect and remember. In a cosmopolitan city like Brussels, cultural exchange and freedom of expression are the pillars of a healthy and democratic society. In our highly polarized world, culture can be a weapon against intolerance. Culture is a vehicle to bring people together and build trust, to create new inclusive narratives that can inspire people to participate as engaged global citizens.
