The month of May is synonymous to "Kunstenfestivaldesarts" in Brussels. The name is a combination of  Festival des Arts (French) and Kunstenfestival (Dutch).
The Festivals website describes it as follows:  "conceived as a bilingual undertaking, it contributes to encouraging dialogue between the communities living in the city. We are part of a complex network of communities that makes territorial, linguistic and cultural divides increasingly porous".
I did not get a chance to go down to the festivities yet. The man in the picture dates from last year's edition, he was enjoying street theater and happy to be in the picture.


  1. Sounds like it will be fun. Diane

  2. I regard the festivities as one of the highlights of a community.
    A great week for you!

  3. Bringing a community together with art is always a great idea.

  4. Carlos and Antares, I agree
    Thank you Diane and Pierre
