Brass'Art digital cafe in Molenbeek
Molenbeek is blossoming with various initiatives in the wake of the Brussels attacks. Brass'Art Digitaal Café is one of those. This project is taking three buildings, two of which have notorious pasts - one was the site where a "sleep merchant" exploitated destitute people and another was the residence of the Abdelslam brothers - and turning them into a community asset. There will be three spaces, a brewery café, called Brass'Art, where people can hang out, drink something and listen to music or enjoy a performance, Ranc'Art which will be a space for meeting and discussing, and Débrouill'Art which will be a space for training workshops. Sanae Jamaï, co-founder with Mohamed Ouachen, tells us about the project. Brass'Art opens 22 March, 19.00

Molenbeek Memorial Interfaith Concert on 22 March anniversary
On the first anniversary of the Brussels attacks there will be an interfaith concert in Saint John the Baptist Church in Molenbeek. Concertmaster Dirk Seghers tells us: "The idea is to let citizens of Brussels sing together as a testimony of cohesion and their support for all the victims." For the most part, the performers are not professionals but dedicated amateurs. Rayan, a Molenbeek youth who developed his talents through a local youth club will sing his version of Leonard Cohen's Hallelujah. A group of women from the Dar Al Amal women's house will preform both Christian and Islamic music. Voces Desuper, a professional choir and the official choir of the Brussels Cathedral, will sing 20th century sacred and sacred-inspired music, and choir Al-Wassîla, part of a Sufi brotherhood will sing authentic Sufi songs. Wednesday 22 March, 20.00.
