CurieuCity Festival

CurieuCity is a new arts and science festival coming to Brussels for the first time throughout 2024. It offers scientific, artistic, and educational activities, partly in public spaces and in collaboration with local initiatives.

CurieuCity cultivates curiosity and wonder in everything that surrounds us individually and collectively. It’s a festival that aims to combine the scientific rigor of universities with the experiential impact of art, STEAM education (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics), and socio-cultural action. Each edition of the festival addresses a question inspired by the reality of the neighborhood where it is located. 

More than just a festival, CurieuCity animates four neighbourhoods throughout the year, aiming to develop sustainable and participatory interest in science by co-creating projects with residents and schools in the area. 

Co-organised by two Brussels universities, the Université libre de Bruxelles and the Vrije Universiteit Brussel, CurieuCity explores the intersection of creativity and curiosity.

As artistic co-programmer, we are presenting the work of artists whose practices cross path with the themes of each edition of the festival.
