deBuren, Leopoldstraat 6, 1000 Brussels
Broodje Brussel brightens up your lunch hour with a whole range of activities: a concert, an exhibition, a workshop, a theatre performance or a relaxing chat. At deBuren you can relax for an hour and listen to tales told by true storytellers. Each month a celebrity shares his or her intense life experiences in a way that captivates listeners.
Robert Delathouwer resigned in 2004 as Secretary of State for Brussels after unrest and conflict in his party (sp.a), but in just under twenty years he managed to acquire a huge amount of experience in and about Brussels. He was a member of parliament for fourteen years, a member of the government for four years in Brussels, chairman of the board of the Flemish Community Commission, chief of the fire brigade and chairman of the MIVB. He is a Flemish Alderman in Koekelberg and since 2005 has been chairman of the Brussels Regional Service for Employment.
Besides being an expert on Brussels, Delathouwer is also, and especially, a Brussels connoisseur. As a true brusseleir and a speaker of the dialect by birth, for many years he has gone to great lengths to promote and reinvigorate the Brussels dialect. "Because it is the language of the people, and it is proof of the Brabant/Dutch-speaking roots of our city."
Or to say it in true Brussels dialect: "plus bruxellois que ça, tu meurs?"
Fields marked with a star are required.
