Participation starts with raising questions and listening. How can we collaborate, through inclusivity rather than exclusivity? How do we maintain relevance among the diversity of our audiences? How should we speak across different backgrounds so that all peoples have the same rights to culture? More than ever, we found that content is key to starting this process of collaboration, that programming is essential to engage audiences actively and to brand institutions openly.
The stories, talks and debates over the five days of CTMBRU were highly insightful into what success – and failure – means in participation. The visits at BOZAR, KANAL – Centre Pompidou, WIELS, MIMA, private collectors’ homes and many more filled the week with inspiration.
Thank you to our private and public partners including Federation Wallonie-Bruxelles, Region Bruxelles Capitale, Visit Brussels, BOZAR, Meyvaert, ING and BASE Design who helped us organise another great encounter.
Brussels is surprising, energetic and stimulating. It is a world class destination for culture.
Thank you all for joining us for this 20th edition of CTM.
