Festival Hub Programme
Made in Scotland Festival
Brussels 2019

Made in Scotland Festival, Brussels invites artists and professionals from Brussels, Belgium, Scotland and across Europe to engage with a series of events throughout the week at our Festival Hub. Using dynamic and discursive formats that will enable participation from all in attendance, the events aim to build on this unique moment of gathering between the arts communities of Brussels, Belgium, Scotland and Europe.

The programme has been devised to respond to essential and urgent contemporary themes of our time and within our sector: Inclusion, Migration, Practice and Place. Exploring these themes in an international context, they also interconnect and relate to each other. Within that we will have speakers and contributors working in and between dance, theatre and music.

In order to facilitate inclusive, dynamic and participative conversation in a friendly and informal setting, we have asked our moderators to use non-traditional formats for these sessions and we will move away from the usual panel/audience format.

These events take place in our Festival Hub at Halles Saint-Géry from 10.00 -18.00, which is also a social meeting point for artists and arts professionals throughout the festival until 01:00 every day. Discussion events are for anyone working in or connected to development of artistic projects, programmes, companies, funds or policies across Europe.

Informal opportunities will also be hosted throughout the week.
