Molenbeek, Capital of Culture: EXCHANGES!

February 27, 2014

The title ‘Capital of Culture’, granted this year by the Federation Wallonia-Brussels together with the ‘Cocof’ (French Community Commission), puts every two years a city’s cultural vitality in the spotlight during a whole year 2014!

After Liège in 2010 and La Louviere in 2012, Molenbeek is the first Brussels municipality that has won this title! Nine other municipalities were also in the running.

We can say that the inhabitants of Molenbeek, supported by local cultural partners, will be the main players of this edition 2014. Furthermore, with more than 200 associations, Molenbeek disposes of an exceptional sociocultural network. Our project aims to put this ‘cultural melting pot’ in the spotlight!
