Become a Passa Porta Friend

Passa Porta Friends bring less visible voices to the foreground

With their observations on a human scale, authors can broaden our view of society. Thanks to them, we can put ourselves in someone else’s shoes and experience other visions and perspectives. Literature forges connections and builds bridges.

Passa Porta wants to act as a driving force in this area and to be a meeting point for various identities, whether languages, cultures or other forms of diversity – of which there is no shortage in a city like Brussels!

Together with our public, we want to get to know the intrinsic diversity of our city, to make room for the stories and voices that get less attention. With this in mind, Passa Porta often explores untrodden paths, even going beyond books and traditional literature.

You can help us to create more such connections, projects and meetings by becoming a Passa Porta Friend. Whether big or small, your support can help us to reinforce our laboratory for the exchange of ideas, texts and stories for all Brussels residents.
