An artistic and participative program in public spaces

With the aim of strengthening the links between the neighbourhoods of Forest and Saint-Gilles and bringing local residents closer to cultural spaces, Hors les muren! creates encounters and cultural, artistic and participative projects, mainly in public spaces.

How does it do this?

- By organising cultural and artistic projects with and for local residents, especially teenagers, while promoting existing projects.

- By setting up synergies and participatory methodologies that allow all the cultural and socio-cultural partners to work together.

- With, at the core of its project, art in public spaces that revitalises them by inviting residents, artists and associations to take those spaces over and brighten them up.

A project uniting three cultural institutions from Forest and Saint-Gilles

The Hors les muren! project exists thanks to a cooperation between three key locations in the municipalities of Saint-Gilles and Forest, with the support of the Collège des bourgmestres et échevins of Forest and Saint-Gilles, within the framework of the Contrat de rénovation urbaine ROI.

The WIELS, one of the capital’s main contemporary art centres.  

BRASS, the cultural centre of Forest, which offers a varied programme of shows, concerts, courses and residencies throughout the year.  

Finally, the Maison des Cultures de Saint-Gilles, a meeting place for art and culture, promoting living together and interculturality.
