Percussion workshops & parades @ Brussels2030 Summer Assembly - 18/06/2022

Percussion workshops & parades @ Brussels2030 Summer Assembly

This summer we participate in the preparation of the candidacy for Brussels European Capital of Culture. During the Brussels2030 Summer Assembly we organise percussion workshops with Jo Zanders on 5, 6 & 7 July. In parallel, Jo also gives workshops DIY percussion in Forest. On July 8, both groups bring a closing musical performance.


Hadja Lahbib, Jan Goossens and their Brussels 2030 team invite everyone to join them in the preparation of the candidacy for Brussels European Capital of Culture 2030. They do this through cultural activities and extensive city surveys in close collaboration with cultural organisations and academic institutions in Brussels. The start will be given during the Brussels2030 Summer Assembly from 4 to 8 July at Tour à Plomb.


Summer Assembly – Workshop week with parades and performances


The Brussels2030 Summer Assembly offers a tantalising multi-day programme for diverse urban actors to inspire one another and initiate processes of collaborative city-making. The program includes keynotes, cocreation labs, workshops, field trips and artistic performances, including some from MetX.


During the official opening on Monday 4 July, Fanfakids will play in the City Hall of Brussels. Jo Zanders and Vital Schraenen then challenge the participants of the Summer Assembly to dive into the punk percussion universe of BRUiTAL. From 5 to 7 July Jo Zanders will give percussion workshops every evening between 6 pm and 8 pm. On Friday 8 July we will conclude with a collective musical performance with the participants of the workshops + Jo & Vital, joined by other musicians from Brussels and beyond.
