Pierre Rabhi “La Sobriété Heureuse” – 10 December 2018

Diversity Makes Music – 21 November 2018

One of the highlights of the year 2018  was the “Diversity Makes Music” concert in Flagey – one of the most important cultural venues of Brussels – on 21 November 2018. Through this concert we wanted to address an contemporary issue dear to us all, namely the migration crisis. This unique concert was a dialogue between East and West, retracing the journey of the Syrian dancer Ahmad Joudeh who was forced to leave his country and travel to Europe. Whereas policies and politicians often fail to create links between very different populations, between the welcoming and the welcomed, artists have a special talent for building bridges and highlighting the universality of what unites us rather than what separates us. This was the message conveyed by this event, which was a great success and a dynamic demonstration of social inclusion at European level.
