Brussels (Belgium)


29 September 2021



On Wednesday 29.9.2021 an inauguration of the Phase 1 of the project took place on the Pieremans Playground. Under the lead of Chloé Saelens the team finished the first part of the painting on the walls. The second part of the wall will be painted in 2022. In order to offer food to the participants the team of the ‘Centre de jeunes’ baked some pancakes that were handed out for free to all participants. This activity gave an active role to the young generation which was an added value to the use of the space.
