Interlitratour

Interlitratour (19-22 February) is a festival that celebrates the literature of many of the different cultural communities which have found a home in Brussels. Taking place for four days in various venues across town including the Fleur en Papier Doré Café, MuntPunt and the Fedasil Arrival Centre along the canal, there will be events ranging from open mic to exhibitions to song creation to music, dance, theatre, fine arts, poetry, slam etc. Marieke Slovin Lewis and Sarah Reader Harris tell us about their participation in the Festival and what they will be presenting.

Fermerie

The City of Brussels has chosen Fermerie to operate its new food kiosk on the Place de Brouckère in the heart of the pedestrian zone. They call what they do naturbanisation. The menu is based on fruits and vegetables grown by urban farmers in Brussels and its surroundings. Food bowls, soups, homemade desserts, coffee and local organic beverages including beer, wine and bubbly to consume there or take away, all operating under a zero waste system. We hear from Fabian Maingain, alderman for economic development for the City of Brussels and Carlos Villanueva, co-founder of Fermerie.
