20:30 Bruxsels Talks

A talk show of the future

‘20:30 Bruxsels Talks: A Talk Show of the Future’, is a scripted radio show set in the year 2030. In a live performance on 23 January 2020, Brusseleirs were transported to a future where Brussels has made an inclusive and sustainable transition that takes care of its diverse population on both an ecological and social level. This future fiction piece is a twofold attempt to make the vastness and complexity of an eco-social future understandable and relatable through storytelling, while also demonstrating the role of media, such as radio, in the process of sustainable transition.  Over the past six months BrusselAVenir gathered content for the show through several ‘LabAVenirs’ participatory workshops, specialist interviews, and collective imagining of Brussels in the year 2030. 

In this fun and entertaining show you will hear people from the future sharing about their lives, hopes and fears. There will be reminiscent throwbacks of the past (that is today) through sound archives; contemporary breaking news; live music; and interviews with influential members of 2030’s society, all with the aim to trigger action to make this plausible future a reality!
