AB wins Flemish Community's Culture Management Award

Summary

Brussels concert venue Ancienne Belgique has won the Flemish Community's Culture Award for Cultural Management

Venue taking over American Theatre

Brussels concert venue Ancienne Belgique has won the Flemish Culture Award for Cultural Management, awarded by Flanders’ culture minister Joke Schauvliege in collaboration with the Bilsen Fund for Cultural Management. Both the large and small halls of the venue are booked solid nightly with a diverse array of music on the programme. AB recently took over management of the abandoned American Theatre at Heizel and are transforming into a multi-disciplinary culture centre.

“Great and small have been to the AB,” said Schauvliege. “That they keep coming back is the merit of a dynamic organisation that is not afraid to modernise without putting away the past in a filing cabinet. That is what makes the AB a name people remember, both at home and abroad.”
