ReSpace is the work of many partners, rather than one. Thanks to the countless common actions and efforts of a great number of dynamic institutions and residents, Ixelles is such a vibrant place to live. Some of our more structural partners can be found here, but there are more, of course. If you are an organiser yourself, feel free to upload your activities on this website, or get in touch.

Brussels Chopin Day

Brussels Chopin Day

- , Elsene
The Brussels Chopin Day had his first edition in 2013, and was born out of enthusiasm, ideology, love for Chopin’s music, and the aim to encourage young toptalents to share their art. These elements are still the heart of the event, but moreover it became an established festival amongst the Belgian classical music scene. One day a year, various young and international pianists come to Brussels to honour the work of Frédéric Chopin. The Brussels Chopin Day selects and focusses on young pianists who are at the beginning of their career, and who’s remarkable talent deserves to be heard by a large public.
