During 4 days there will be literature in the air. The heart of Europe’s capital will beat to the rhythm of poetry, slam, prose, verse and rhyme. Words on the wings of music, dance, theatre and fine arts. A celebration of Brussels’ vibrant, multicultural spirit.




Interlitratour is an intercultural, literary festival in the municipalities of Brussels from Wednesday 19 to Saturday 22 February 2020. The program consists of activities from numerous associations, organizations and individual artists or citizens in Brussels.

Interlitratour brings Brussels’ residents together through their own, culture-specific literature. The events are located at the crossroads of international literature, migration to Belgium and Brussels society. Interlitratour offers a stage, opportunities to discover and builds bridges between communities.


Organizers: Arthis – Het Belgisch-Roemeens Cultureel Huis, Davidsfonds, FMDO, Internationaal Comité, Masereelfonds, Peace PerformanceTrain, Vermeylenfonds, Willemsfonds



NEW BEGINNINGS are incarnated in the circle of life itself. Birth is our first NEW BEGINNING. Each spring we witness a NEW BEGINNING, the awakening of nature. Each morning gives us the chance for a NEW BEGINNING, to see our life in a new light. Every decision human beings take, in a personal, cultural or political sphere lead to NEW BEGINNINGS. In the words of Hermann Hesse:


A magic dwells in each beginning,

protecting us, telling us how to live.

(excerpt from the poem “Stufen”)
