Mixity Awards put Brussels diversity projects in the spotlight

16:01 18/10/2016

The deadline is looming for organisations to submit their candidacy for the Mixity Awards, organised by visit.brussels as a way to honour the Capital-Region's best associative, cultural, and sporting initiatives that contribute to the national and international reputation of Brussels, writes Bruzz. Organisations have until 31 October to submit their candidacy.

Four organisations will be selected to win up to €25,000 each for their project with a focus on promoting diversity and living together in harmony, regardless of age, background, sexual orientation, religion or disability. The best projects are those that open up new opportunities for dialogue among different groups of people, according to visit.brussels. A total of €235,000 are up for grabs, considering all nominations and awards.

The winning projects, to be completed between October 2014 and October 2016, will be crowned in five categories: two 'coolest events', a best practice award, an audience award and a corporate project prize.

The Mixity Awards ceremony will take place in May 2017.
