With this symposium, BOZAR holds its closing event of the project ‘Dis-othering: Beyond Afropolitan and Other labels’. This introduction day aims at framing the event within the context of this Creative Europe project. The different ways in which ‘othering’ and ‘dis-othering’ practices are present in the Belgian and European cultural domain, will be discussed.
A particular attention will be given to the Dis-othering research ‘Mapping Diversities in Belgian Cultural institutions’.
