Whether you devour books, only read occasionally or are simply curious, at Passa Porta you are quite literally at the right address if you are looking to get a fresh perspective or a deeper insight.

A unique stage for literature in Brussels

We regularly welcome writers from Belgium and abroad – from established names to fresh voices and emerging talents to big names – for a frank conversation about their work or a specific theme.

Writers are not only wordsmiths, but are also inspired thinkers who keep a finger on the pulse of literature and society. Passa Porta wishes to bring as many people as possible together around their books and to share their ideas.

The meetings with writers at Passa Porta, prepared with passion, courage and thoroughness, are more than simply the presentation of literary works. We seek to achieve a genuine connection between writer and reader, and among readers themselves.
