Antwerp City Hall
Our solidarity project 'Noot voor Nood' and especially this year's fourth edition has been warmly embraced by the City of Antwerpen. They wanted to show us their appreciation of what we do and thus invited us for a reception at the AMAZING, recently renovated City Hall. We very much appreciated the warm welcome of Deputee of Culture Mss. Nabilla Ait-Daoud !
So now let's say cheeeeers :)
Furthermore, this year's edition is also being supported by Pro Arte and the NSZ (Neutraal Syndicaat voor Zelfstandigen).
