Het beschrijf is a literary organisation with its home in Brussels, the multilingual, hybrid city on which it bases its operations.
Het beschrijf organises literary evenings, encounters with authors, debates, festivals and special projects on contemporary Dutch-language and other literatures. One of its ongoing tasks is to introduce lesser-known literatures. Het beschrijf provides the substance for the activities of the Passa Porta International House of Literature, a unique workplace and meeting place that puts Brussels fairly and squarely on the literary map.
In addition, Het beschrijf maintains a wide-ranging international literary network, invites foreign writers and translators for residencies in Flanders and Brussels, and engages in developing the Vers Brussel urban poetry route with Belgian artists and international poets.
Location: Rue Antoine Dansaert, 46, 1000 Bruxelles
