Description

How can we create a place in public space for the exchange of various forms of repressed or underexposed knowledge?
That's one of the starting points of bodies of knowledge (BOK), an alternative and nomadic school in Brussels. Every Saturday there are different learning topics on the programme (discussions, testimonies, physical practices…).

BOK is a place where people can learn from each other. Things one usually does not learn, told by voices that are not always heard, from different parts of society and the world. In BOK we exchange knowledge that feeds a more just and humane society. It is a space to listen, to ask, to connect. BOK welcomes life experts rather than professional authorities.
Every Saturday, the BOK-tent hosts several “bodies of knowledge”. Welcome!
SATURDAY 27 NOVEMBER
