14 March 2022 — Flemish minister for Brussels Affairs, Youth and Media, Benjamin Dalle, will visit the Dutch Language House in Brussels. The minister will be shown the renovated atrium of the Dutch Language House and given a demonstration of the customer experience. Director Patrick Manghelinckx will thank the minister for the invaluable support provided to realise this project.

The Dutch Language House Brussels is opening its doors to show how the renovated atrium area will be a place where everyone in Brussels can come and improve their Dutch language skills. Minister Dalle will be given a guided tour to demonstrate the experience of visiting the Dutch Language House. In 2021, the Dutch Language House Brussels optimised the customer-friendliness of the atrium, the signage as well as the digital appointment system. By 2023, we plan to make it an even more appealing and interesting experience, forging an even stronger connection with the city. We hope all Brussels residents will come and enjoy a Dutch-language visit to the new atrium in a cosy atmosphere. 

We are turning the atrium area into an exploration space”, says Patrick Manghelinckx. As they walk past our building, people living in Brussels will be encouraged to come in and learn about the Dutch language. We have installed digital screens with animation and information, a flyer wall, inspiring audio material, a reading room and even a word game on the wall. During their journey of discovery, visitors can enjoy a drink in a pleasant setting.” 

The Dutch Language House Brussels is not alone in this renewal process. We work together with Brussels partner organisations, entrepreneurs and aspiring young artists,” says Patrick Manghelinckx. Students from the Anderlecht Kunsthumaniora school of arts will be given space in our atrium to connect art and language as part of their school assignment. For the Dutch Language House, innovation goes hand in hand with learning and creativity in every area.”
