Discover the languages of Schaerbeek!

Arab, Turkish, Berber, Dutch, Brussels, Swahili, Polish… these are only few of the languages that colour the shared French language in the area around La Cage aux Ours/Place Verboeckhoven.
The dictionary of La Langue Schaerbeekoise/De Schaarbeekse Taal shows the influences of the many languages you hear daily in the big city. The book is also a contemporary portrait of an area and languages that are continuously evolving.

Vernissage on Tuesday 5-2 at 19h!
With guided visits for young & old (vzw Entr’âges).

La Langue Schaerbeekoise/De Schaarbeekse Taal is a project of vzw Constant in the framework of the neighbourhood contract Navez-Portaels. This social-artistic project took place around Place Verboekhoven aka La Cage aux Ours between 2009 and 2012. With the support of the Brussels Capital Region, The Commune of Schaarbeek and Renovas.
