Welcome reception

The opening reception will take place on the evening of 14 April 2020, in the Flagey building at Place Flagey in Elsene/Ixelles, from 18:30 to 21:00.

The historical Flagey building, designed in 1933, was home to the national broadcasting institute (and later institutes) of Belgium until 1974. After renovating the neglected building – welcome to Brussels and Belgium – it is now a cultural center, hosting concerts, film screening, … and conference receptions!
