The KnowHate evening is a cosy soirée for the energies of poets, artists, musicians and journalists, established and not. It is a place where words, sounds and visuals are most important. An evening in which all manner of human beings are welcome to acquire the knowledge and critical understanding of the issues of hate, discrimination and human rights through an engaging artistic approach.
This time we organise it at Belgaleiro, a Belgian Brazilian tapasbar busy with organising art events.
In the social and political current climate of Belgium, bringing people together is essential. We are trying to show how easy it is to sit down with someone who may have opposing views to you and still find so much in common.
The evening begins at 19:00 with the 10-minute reflection session which aims at countering hate by projecting a certain thought. The session will be conducted by Inge Demuynck, a coach, currently working with small and large groups showcasing how the power of group intention can change the world for the better.
The session will be followed by the main artistic part: poetry performances + live music show by Slow Bear. This part invites audience to an individual’s self-reflective process.
Belgaleiro is located in Leuven (Belgium), on Goudsbloemstraat 50.
