About BrusselAVenir

Brussels 2030.
How will we consume?
How will we move through the city?
How will we raise our kids?
How will we take care of each other?
And how do we WANT to live?

BrusselAVenir depicts new narratives for Brussels – together with citizens, entrepreneurs, experts and creatives.

Future imaginaries have a power to inspire innovation and shape our societies. We live in times of uncertainty, chaos, increasing inequalities and fears about tomorrow. We know how to analyse the problems. But what we need is new co-created stories that stimulate us to work towards it together.

Every six months, we crowdsource a question on how we will live in our city in 2030. We select one question to work on, map the current situation and imagine possible futures in open workshops. We discuss the future visions with citizens and choose the most desired ones. These ideas become stories as we shape them into different forms – print, video, theatre, exhibitions… – and spread them throughout the city.
