CurieuCity, the new can't-miss festival, invites you to explore the captivating world of art and science that will amaze Brussels all year long!

The first edition features four unique events spread across four different neighborhoods of the city. After the inaugural stop in Molenbeek, it's time for a second stop in Forest, where we invite you to discover the city all weekend long with a rich and varied program.

The program includes a multitude of activities designed for an audience from 0 to 99 years old! Performances, walks, workshops, exhibitions, experiences, and meetings with scientists and artists await you.

What truly makes CurieuCity special is its community-oriented engagement, where the program is continuously reshaped in collaboration with local partners and organizations. These collaborations enrich the programming with a diversity of talents and perspectives from the community. Together, we are building a dynamic space for reflection, discovery, and co-creation.

About CurieuCity

CurieuCity is a new arts and science festival coming to Brussels this year. It offers scientific, artistic, and educational activities, partly in public spaces and in collaboration with local initiatives

CurieuCity cultivates curiosity and wonder in everything that surrounds us individually and collectively. It’s a festival that aims to combine the scientific rigor of universities with the experiential impact of art, STEAM education (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics), and socio-cultural action. Each edition of the festival addresses a question inspired by the reality of the neighborhood where it is located. In this way, at the urban site of Westpark, we will imagine the city of the future, delve into the world of water and microorganisms in the Wiels Marsh neighborhood, or emphasize the human aspect in the Marolles neighborhood by exploring the role of sports in social cohesion.

The world needs you

This initiative is part of VUB's public programme: a programme for everyone who believes that scientific knowledge sharing, critical thinking and dialogue are an important first step to create impact in the world.
