Listen back to the reports and interviews from The Bulletin's Sunday lunchtime show on 98.8FM in Brussels

Brussels' plaster cast workshop

There is a section of the Royal Museum of Art and History that is unique in that it displays a museum collection and is also a going commercial concern producing art for sale. It's the Plaster-cast Workshop that houses over 4,000 historical plaster casts as well as creating new ones. Nele Strobbe, responsible for the collection tells us exactly what they do and when you can visit for free. We also hear from Elena Salvini, co-curator of the new KBR Museum, about how and why the two institutions collaborated.

Movie Drive

Brussels has its own drive-in cinema all summer long. Called Movie Drive it will operate July through September at Tour & Taxis with a 340m² LED screen (bigger than a basketball court), in fact the biggest screen in Europe. Mario Iacampo, co-producer, explains why they are calling this “drive-in 2.0" and tells us what to expect.
