Brussels Explained | On health insurance funds, the secret live of urban foxes and female nudity in art museums after #metoo

With Hildegard Frimpong, Olivier Beck and Ciska Hoet

How do Belgian health insurance funds work? Why are there so many foxes in Brussels? And what to do with female nudity in art museums after #metoo?

deBuren, Curieus and The Bulletin joined hands with journalist Selma Franssen to organize an English edition of ´Moeilijke Dingen Makkelijk Uitgelegd´ with a focus on Brussels. Brussels Explained is an eye-opening and interactive evening in English that aims to help us better understand the city in which we live. Five experts will deliver a 10-minute presentation on a different aspect of city life - followed by a short talk with journalist Selma Franssen and plenty of opportunity for questions and answers.


During this edition paralegal Hildegard Frimpong will explain everything you need to know about Belgian health insurance funds. Olivier Beck (Leefmilieu Brussel) will talk about the secret life of foxes in Brussels. And Ciska Hoet (co-director RoSa) will close the evening with a presentation on female nudity in art museums after #metoo.
