Cultural associations

The City of Brussels supports cultural associations.

Support for cultural associations

Brussels has a particularly dense network of cultural associations. The City of Brussels is funding both large and small organizations, and thereby encourages in particular initiatives that promote accessibility, social cohesion, cultural diversity, urban forms of expression and the heritage conservation in Brussels.

Two types of subsidies can be granted: so-called operating subsidies and event subsidies.

Application forms
