After all the uncertainty of the last few months, we are pleased to welcome you back to BOZAR. We can’t do that with the programme we originally planned, but a modified offering that allows us to meet again in the safest of circumstances. To enable us to adapt as best we can to the changing circumstances and to welcome you back under the best conditions possible, we are still developing some of our programme. If you keep following us throughout the season, we will do our best to keep you up to date. Because there’s one thing you can be sure of in all this uncertainty: although we will have to host smaller audiences at the a time, the artistic quality will be undiminished!

One thing that hasn't changed is our seasonal theme : Art & Well-BeingWe have put together a scintillating programme of exhibitions, concerts, performances, debates and workshops based on this theme. Could it be any more topical, now that we are all gripped by the psychological, social and economic effects of confinement?

That is because art is good for you. It is good for your mental, physical and social well-being. The creation and experience of art offers more than beauty, solace and joy in times of crisis and pandemic. It is a basic human need. The arts connect us, give us inner strength, explore the boundaries and give us a glimpse of another, better world.

Dirk De Wachter, practising psychiatrist and lecturer at UPC KU Leuven, will be making regular appearances as our ambassador this season. Reflecting on art and well-being, he offers these words of encouragement for us: ‘In these strange times let us use the arts to strengthen the imagination and communication. If we are prevented from touching each other, we might, through the indirect appreciation of art, find a special and more deeply entwined bond than that offered by touching directly.’

The new season is like no other before. Are you ready for a restorative dose of Art & Well-Being at BOZAR?
