THE BRUSSELS CREATIVE FORUM STARTS THIS FRIDAY
From Friday 30 August until Sunday 1 September, the BRUSSELS CREATIVE FORUM
will be brining together professionals from the world of culture and the cultural and creative
industries for the first time, in a marquee in the Place des Palais in Brussels.
Culture and creativity abound in Brussels, with more than 17,000 events a year reflecting the
wealth and depth that the city has to offer. The BRUSSELS CREATIVE FORUM offers the
perfect opportunity to showcase creativity in Brussels, its richness, its diversity, its expertise,

training and professional integration, the cultural and creative industries, architecture and
urban planning, audiovisual material and the media.
The goal of the BRUSSELS CREATIVE FORUM is to create a platform for stakeholders in
culture and creativity to meet regularly in Brussels in order to share their best practices and
