The Way Back – Film concert

This activity is only available in FR

In August 2015, Hussein Rassim arrives in Brussels after traveling thousands of kilometers from Iraq. A year later, after obtaining his residence permit, he decides to travel to Greece. This musical road movie takes you through Hussein’s migratory journey and that of thousands of other migrants. Through his encounters and the countries he traverses, his story takes shape and gives a voice to the forgotten.

“The Way Back” is more than just a documentary. Hussein’s captivating journey helps us better understand the plight of migrants and the challenges they face. This engaging cinematic experience raises awareness of the complex reality of migration, sheds light on the individual stories behind the statistics, and questions European immigration policy. With its dual approach, “The Way Back” humanizes the phenomenon of migration while encouraging critical reflection on contemporary sociopolitical issues.

During this cine-concert, the screening of The Way Back is accompanied by live music performed by the band Jaqâmaz, which includes the film’s protagonists, Hussein and Juliette.

Planned obsolescence

Are you frustrated that your smartphone seems to be gradually slowing down even though it’s only 2 years old? Are you dreading the day when your printer breaks down for no apparent reason? We’ve probably all experienced this kind of problem before. Who is responsible for this? Is it programmed obsolescence?

In this interactive animation, we will try to answer these questions by analysing with you concrete cases that you encounter every day.

Super Terram & CiDéSol

Walk and soil analysis

Workshop available only in French

Join us for a workshop to discover the soils of Park West. The workshop will begin with an informative walk where we will collect soil samples while learning about the characteristics and impact of pollution on our soils. The 45-minute walk will be followed by a hands-on workshop on producing chromatographs to analyse the nutrient and carbon content of soil.

Soil chromatography is an analytical method used to separate and identify the chemical components present in a soil sample. The technique is based on the difference in speed at which substances move through a stationary support under the action of a mobile fluid. For soils, it is particularly useful for analysing the content of nutrients, carbon and other organic or mineral substances.

Xavier Gazon

Circuit bending hub

This activity is only available in FR

In this interactive workshop, Xavier Gazon invites you to discover the art of circuit bending, a practice similar to hardware hacking. Learn how to hijack the internal circuits of electronic objects to create new sounds and sound effects. With a little imagination and creativity, you can give a second life to discarded devices and transform them into unique and original musical instruments. It’s a fun and educational experience, where music goes hand in hand with craft and innovation to create something truly unique.

Circuit bending and hardware piracy are often associated with the idea of “open source”, which encourages sharing and collaboration around knowledge and resources. This philosophy also applies to the field of electronic music, where circuit bending enthusiasts often share their discoveries, techniques and creations with other enthusiasts, encouraging the emergence of new ideas and projects.

Xavier Gazon is Belgian a music composer, sound artist and performer who works with modular synthesizers, homemade electronic instruments and electro-acoustic instruments.
