A few of the associations with whom we will work
La Fonderie

The Brussels museum of Industry and Labour was created following the initiative of La Fonderie, Centre for economical and social history of the Brussels region, and located in the Halle des Tourneurs, workshop of the former “Compagnie des Bronzes de Bruxelles”. It presents temporary exhibitions, which evoke the economical, social and industrial life of Brussels and its inhabitants based on a historical analysis and an original approach.
A few examples of exhibitions: Fabrique d’Art (on the work of the Compagnie des Bronzes); Tour et Taxis; En avant pour le suffrage universel; Molenbeek, récits de ville…

Arau

ARAU, what is it?
L’ARAU (Atelier de Recherche et d’Actions urbaines) is a group of Brussels residents organised as a non-profit association, which examines urban developement projects, both public and private, and attempts to improve them from the point of view of local residents, by suggesting more housing, more mixed-function buildings, a more varied mix of social classes and devotion of public space for the use of active citizens. Our overall objective is to promote the city as a place where people want to live.

Citeculture


Depuis plusieurs années déjà, la politique culturelle de la Ville de Bruxelles tend à renforcer, développer et soutenir les différents lieux décentrés qui y sont rattachés.
C’est assurément dans cette logique que des moyens supplémentaires ont été octroyés, depuis 2010, au dynamisme mis en place dans le Centre Culturel de la Cité Modèle depuis huit saisons.
Cette saison 2011-2012 s’articule autour de neuf festivals piliers : A Cappella, rock, danse contemporaine, musique classique, Arts urbains, Diabolus in musica, humour, les nuits cœur d’Afrique et bien sûr, le Festival Country de Bruxelles qui clôturera ce programme éclectique à la fin du mois de juin.
Entre ces dates phares, pas de place pour la monotonie, des matchs de la ligue d’impro amateur aux conférences d’exploration du monde en passant par les jam sessions, les répétitions de la fanfare Jour de fête ou les mercredis des oreilles vertes…chacun y trouvera son compte.

ULB Germe

GERME is a research group of social scientists (trained in sociology, anthropology and/or political science) studying processes of inclusion and exclusion in the context of diverse societies that are marked by social inequalities. Although initially mainly focussing its research activities on racism, migration, exclusion and ethnicity, researchers based at GERME are now working on a wide range of topics. These include – without being exhaustive – citizenship practices, multiculturalism, migrant integration policy, urban policy, gender relations, xenophobia, labour market inclusion, education, culture, religion, political participation, social networks and social stratification. In our research work there is a firm emphasis on processes of ethnicisation and racialisation, on the reproduction of social inequalities and on relations between ethno-cultural minority and majority groups.
