A leading multidisciplinary federal cultural institution in Belgium, often referred to as BOZAR (a homophone of “Beaux-arts”), it includes exhibition and conference rooms, a movie theatre and a concert hall which serves as home to the National Orchestra of Belgium.

With a national, European and international mission, BOZAR serves an artistic and policy platform for new ideas and concepts. Creativity, quality, and artistic diversity have been at the heart of the Centre’s mission since its foundation. But for art not to be something abstract and distant, for it to be truly part of the “culture” of a society – and particularly in a city as variegated and international as Brussels – the public must be able to experience it in a way that is both natural and lively. Art and people must find and recognize each other, must interact with and enrich each other.
