The online interdisciplinary conference ‘Black Europe in Brussels’ consist of a range of inspiring activities taking place between 1-15 July 2021.

The conference brings to the forefront the Afroeuropean communities and Brussels, the capital of Belgium and Europe. It engages with the dynamism emerging from the growing decolonisation movements and their calls for rethinking dominant modes of knowledge production and representation. This is particularly pertinent as Brussels is a cosmopolitan city wherein various transnational diasporic and Afroeuropean communities move, make space and resist.

The conference is interdisciplinary and intersectoral, which is reflected in the series of events focusing on various themes including Afroeuropean arts, Afroeuropean communities and the European Parliament, care and racial inequalities & Black histories. ‘Black Europe in Brussels’ aims to be an academic, activist and intellectual space bridging the boundaries between institutions & practices.

This event is organized in anticipation of the 8th Biennial Afroeuropeans Network Conference which is postponed to 6-9 July 2022 due to COVID-19.
