Arts Centre Beursschouwburg is celebrating Finland week in March with three events.

Do you ever feel like society isn’t exactly what it could be? Do certain aspects of society tire you or piss you off? Do you just feel like cursing and smashing the patriarchy?

If you answered yes to any of the above, you need to be at the Feminist Curse Night.

The first Curse Night outside of Finland, which took place in Brussels in October 2017, loosened many tongues frustrated with society’s power structures. The space was full to the brim and there was a real sense of community when the whole bar shouted “Fuck that!” with one voice.

15 March will be another day to become empowered when Beursshouwburg opens its doors to cursing feminists ready to tear down the patriarchy. The concept created by the Finnish feminist think tank ‘Hattu’ offers people who are frustrated with prevailing power structures the opportunity to blow off steam through rhyme, song, or some other means of expression. The event is moderated by one of the founders of think tank Hattu, freelance writer and unshakeable feminist Rosa Meriläinen.

Be a participant or come and support those taking the stage and discover that you are not alone in your thoughts. Receive feminism’s warm embrace, the floor is yours!

Renowned Finnish artists and rising talents in Brussels: a broad cultural programme supports the presidency of the Council of the EU’s themes

(FI) Heinäkuun alussa käynnistyvän Suomen EU-puheenjohtajakauden aikana Brysselissä nähdään suomalaisen nykytaiteen ja kulttuurin kärkinimiä sekä vahvassa nosteessa olevia tuoreita lupauksia. Laaja kulttuuriohjelma tukee puheenjohtajakauden prioriteettiteemoja. Suomen Benelux-instituutti Brysselissä osallistuu vahvasti ohjelman toteutukseen.

RE/defining Finnish Contemporary Art & Design

Our project focusing on Finnish art and design stretches across the entire year and aims to highlight Finnish designers in central Europe. Together with Brussels based Spazio Nobile gallery we will be participating in several prominent design fairs as well as organise a number of exhibitions, all the while striving to redefine the wide range of skills and expertise in design and art that can be found in Finland. The overall project is curated by the founder of the Spazio Nobile gallery, Lise Coirier, and the director of the Finnish Cultural Institute for the Benelux, Kati Laakso. The project also extends to the spaces of our colleagues at the Finnish Institute in Paris in the spring and summer of 2019.

International Women’s Day – Breakfast Discussion

Do girls and boys have equal opportunities in education and self-expression? Join the Nordic diplomatic representations and cultural institutes in Brussels for a breakfast debate on International Women's Day. In the Nordic countries, researchers and educators have been studying the subject for decades, but we still have a lot to learn. With the panel discussion, we wish to take a look at what role gender plays in education and learning in our systems today.

MYTHS AND DEMONS – closing debate

Almost 30 years after the end of the Cold War and 15 years after the accession of the states of Central and Eastern Europe to the EU, the European continent remains trapped in an understanding going back more than a century of the nation state as a territorially bounded community, and struggles to implement transnational or even de-territorialized forms of citizenship. What is the future of the European continent 100 years from now? BOZAR and Archa Theatre (Prague) invite you to Myths and Demons, the closing participative debate of the year-long project 1918 European Dreams of Modernity.
