Brussels in Dialogue

Between 14 and 20 October 2013, take a seat at one of the dozens of dialogue tables in the city!

Brussels in Dialogue is the ambitious follow-up project to Dialogue Day, which has been organized by Regional Integration Centre Foyer since 2007. With Brussels in Dialogue, Foyer and its many partner organizations want to bring people from various backgrounds together around the dialogue table.

During the week of Brussels in Dialogue  you can take a seat at one of the dozens of dialogue tables that are set up all across Brussels. In a group of 6 -10 people, you can share experiences and thoughts relating to the theme “On the Way”. A trained dialogue facilitator breaks the ice and ensures that the conversation runs smoothly. Getting to know one another, exchanging experiences, sharing dreams and thinking about concrete actions are the aims of the dialogue. Thus, Brussels in Dialogue  wants to stimulate active citizenship and meetings between a wide variety of people.

Who can take part?
Brussels in Dialogue  is for everyone. Young or old, man or woman, manual labourer or executive, monolingual or polyglot, born Bruxellois, new Belgian or accidental passer-by, ... Everyone is welcome at the dialogue table. Brussels in Dialogue is all about unexpected encounters and the enriching and inspiring experiences that flow from them.

Famous faces such as Herman Van Rompuy (European president), Erhan Demirci (stand-up comedian), Daan (singer) and Pascal Duquenne (actor) support Brussels in Dialogue. You can meet our ambassadors at
