About & Partners

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. With 4 weekends and 4 different locations, you can find it:

  • May 3-5, 2024 – Weststation & Westpark
  • September 27-29, 2024 – Wiels Marsh & Saint-Antoine/Saint-Gilles District
  • October 11-13, 2024 – Canal Zone in Molenbeek
  • November 29-30 and December 1st, 2024 – Marolles

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.

More than just a festival, CurieuCity animates your neighborhoods throughout the year. Its goal is to develop sustainable and participatory interest in science by co-creating projects with residents and schools in the area. Find these projects in the festival program and on our “communities” page.

CurieuCity explores the intersection of creativity and curiosity. To illustrate this idea and create its own spellbinding atmosphere, we are delighted to be working with Marie Douel, a Brussels-based scenographer. With her keen eye for detail and innovative approach, Marie transforms spaces into immersive experiences that enchant and inspire.

Curieucity is funded by the Brussels Region via Innoviris, which involves the sister universities ULB and VUB and their co-artistic director, OHME, along with the VGC also for the educational pre-course in schools.
