The Bulletin on Bruzz: 6 September

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

Brussels Explained

Will citizen participation help steer Brussels through the coronavirus crisis? What's the history of the city's Pride parade? And why has the Justice Palace been covered in scaffolding since the 1980s? These are just some of the questions that will be tackled in the new series of Brussels Explained, an eye-opening and interactive set of talks in September that aim to help us better understand the city in which we live. The first Brussels Explained event, held in real-life at De Buren last October, was a big success - and now the event has gone online, allowing for even more interactivity, as participants can ask questions in real time via Facebook Live. Organiser Selma Franssen explains all.

The Korean Cultural Centre (KCC) in Brussels is busy dealing with the pandemic imposed restrictions while getting ready to reopen very soon as well as preparing for 2021 which will be full of special events to commemorate the 120th anniversary of the opening of diplomatic relations between Korea and Belgium. Chung Haetal, communications director, tells us what's in store.
