Decolonial guided tour of Woluwe-Saint-Pierre/Sint-Pieters-Woluwe (fully booked)

© Municipality of Woluwe-Saint-Pierre/Sint-Pieters-Woluwe

Led by Collectif Mémoire Coloniale et Lutte contre les Discriminations, this guided tour of the streets, statues and monuments of Woluwe-Saint-Pierre/Sint-Pieters-Woluwe will focus on ‘collective memory’, reflecting on the history of (de)colonisation and recontextualising its legacy in the public space. It will take in Avenue de Tervueren/Tervurenlaan, Avenue Général Baron Empain/Generaal Baron Empainlaan and the Madoux tram stop, ending up at the Rwandan Embassy. The aim will be to learn more about the history that binds Belgium to Africa and to further the development of a shared collective memory.

In cooperation with the Municipality of Woluwe-Saint-Pierre/Sint-Pieters-Woluwe and Collectif Mémoire Coloniale et Lutte contre les Discriminations.
