An art collection for the Brussels Public Welfare Office

The Brussels Public Welfare Office (CPAS) has many responsibilities, the most important of which is, of course, assisting people. However, even though it might not seem so obvious, the Public Welfare Office is also an art venue. Why not come and admire some its art works, paintings, sculptures and even pieces made from gold and silver. You will discover why this institution owns, stores and exhibits these works of art while immersing yourself in the history of the Belgian capital! It will also give you a chance to learn about the development and evolution of public welfare services in Brussels and gain an understanding of the importance of the archives and heritage, including that of the artistic and moveable variety, of a public service such as the Brussels Public Welfare Office. A game will also be organised for younger visitors (8 to 12 years of age) to test their skills of observation!

In cooperation with Once in Brussels and the CPAS de la Ville de Bruxelles.
