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.

On the programme are the Belgian premiere of the Syrian Expat Philharmonic Orchestra, an exhibition of photographer Johan Van Steen who died at Maelbeek station, some meaningful encounters organised by ‘Circles - We have the choice’, a ceremony for the victims of the attacks arranged by his partner and choreographed by Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker, an installation by ‘Ruimtevaarders’ as part of the Klarafestival and inspired by refugee tents – a poignant reminder of the ongoing crisis placed within a historical frame –, and finally the Day of Dignity for All, an initiative by Samira Bendadi, a journalist for the MO* magazine and Mohamed Ikoubaân, director of Moussem.
