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 MicroMarché, a social-economic and cultural market focused on research, training, political change and experimentation. Based on the principles of sharing and collaboration, they work as a hub and promoter between start-ups, innovative projects, the neighbourhood and the broad public.
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 main artistic part: poetry performances + live music show by Slow Bear. This part invites audience to an individual’s self-reflective process.
The second part of the event is exchanging thoughts and feelings on the happening while having a chance to observe visual art works by Bart Dewolf (Inmodis) and other visual artists exhibited at the venue and to speak directly with the artists.
MicroMarché is located in Brussels, Quai Fernand Demets 55, 1070 Anderlecht
