Every Ending is a New Beginning

I’m delighted –but also a bit sad- to announce to you that we presented the final results of the project to our commissioner today. Now that the Research Report, the Project Plan, the Course of Action and the article for Colin’s Uncover Magazine are handed in, we’re all very satisfied with the outcome and the process as a whole. I’ll might even miss the project and the lovely team I was working with but as they say; every ending is the start of something new (only if the Mayans were wrong though)! So yes… for the members of Bridge this project has ended today. However, the process of Social Innovation does not stop and the network we set up with be sustained so that the solutions can be realized eventually. We created a Facebook page that will function as a platform for everyone who is –and wants to be-  involved in this project so if you’d like to share your opinions and ideas or if you just like what we did; go to (and press LIKE)! If anyone of you is interested in receiving more information about the documents I mentioned earlier, please feel free to send an email to!

Below you can find some slides of our final presentation:

And last but not least, this blog will NOT die! You don’t have to worry cause we are planning to continue writing, as we all enjoyed sharing our ideas and progress with you here! We might not post every day, but there are definitely some interesting developments going on we can’t keep to ourselves… Curious? Stay tuned!

European Capital of Culture 2018: BrabantStad

The initiative of European Capital of Culture has become one of the most high-profile cultural events in Europe and it provides living proof of the richness and diversity of culture on the continent. More than 40 cities have been ECoC so far but you probably think now; why is this interesting for your project?

Well, five cities in Brabant – Breda, Den Bosch, Eindhoven, Helmond & Tilburg – are nominated to become European Capital of Culture 2018! This initiative is called BrabantStad and it is defined as a competitive and sustainable developing urban network. The nominated cities are not only selected on their current situation but also on their plans for the future. BrabantStad has set up 6 goals for the future:

1. Balance between urban and green

2. Sustainable and environmental friendly region

3. High quality cultural, sports and economic facilities

4. Leading knowledge and innovation region of Europe

5. Internal and external accessibility

6. BrabantStad, a strong network.

Below you can find the English Promo video of BrabantStad:

In relation to this project, visual culture is playing an important role within Brabantstad  This specific notion of art is the upcoming trend in Breda and its surroundings and encompasses the phenomenon of images in every medium – be it advertising, film or paintings. So actually, the visual culture of Brabant will be influenced by the candidacy of European Capital of Culture. Keep an eye on this blog if you want to find out more!
