Voices and stories, that's the basis. Tales and radio replays available in the form of podcasts that we produce or that we accompany, which we also broadcast in our monthly show La Base every first Thursday of the month at 12:45 on Radio Panik (105.4 fm). At the base of radio, there are voices, stories, the multitude. Radio must consider its listeners as experts. Giving them a voice is the basis. The podcasts we offer are often the result of live radio broadcasts made with various audiences in the context of workshops.

Vitrien is, literally and figuratively, the BNA-BBOT showcase with a permanent sound installation audible from the street. But Vitrien is also a space for artistic development in which the creations of young sound artists, inspired by the BNA-BBOT database, are exhibited in the form of a temporary installation. Each year, a call for projects is launched for this purpose, from which four artists are selected. With this initiative, BNA-BBOT wants to keep its archive alive and creative, to draw attention to its work and to create opportunities for young Brussels creators. The previous Vitrien were taken over by the artists: Lukas De Clerck (Vitrien 1), KU Leuven International Master of Architecture (Vitrien 2), Rébecca Fruitman & Amina Saâdi (Vitrien 3), Pierre Royland (Vitrien 4), ooooo (Vitrien 5), Mia Melvær & Les Microsondes (Vitrien 6)

Over the period 2022-2024 BNA-BBOT will be present with Exit in the prisons of Sint-Gillis, Vorst and Berkendael. In Exit, BNA-BBOT creates an artistic sound profile of the prisons. A participatory process that comes about in collaboration with inmates, guards, management and local residents. The prisons of Sint-Gillis, Vorst and Berkendael are moving to the large prison complex in Haren. With Exit, we accompany the closure of the three Brussels prisons by mapping small and big events, stories from the distant and recent past and field recordings. Many sounds that can be heard in the prisons now will be lost during the move to and the modernisation of the prison in Haren. 

The aim of this project is to create an auditory archive of the three sites, to preserve stories and sounds and to open them up to the public through sound installations in the prisons in the period after the move. The installations are site specific and immersive, exploring acoustics, architecture and materials through sound and making them accessible to the general public.

Collaborations: De Rode Antraciet, Gemeentelijke Bibliotheek van Sint-Gillis, Gemeentelijke Bibliotheek van Vorst, La Fonderie, BRUZZ, De Vlaamse Gemeenschap.

Cities are gaining importance worldwide as places where people settle but also as contexts for research and policy. The VUB and Erasmushogeschool Brussel invited BBOT to join them in preparing the candidacy of Brussels as European Capital of Culture in 2030. By 2030, most of the world's population will be urban, with a young population, diverse in origin and often in a vulnerable position.

We strongly believe in a transdisciplinary approach, bringing together theoretical and empirical-methodological frameworks from socio-agogical and futures research in order to get a broad view of the desires, strengths and needs of young people between 16 and 28 years old. By stimulating rigorous imagination, among other things by means of sound and sound perception, we arrive at a wide range of images of the future and citizenship ideas.

Local sound travel agency 

Sonorama is a Brussels-based travel agency that has the particularity of proposing unusual sound trips within the city. A catalogue lists a range of proposals for a wide audience. All types of travellers can find something to suit them!

The Sonorama catalogue is the result of an ongoing participatory process. It is gradually taking shape through animation devices and artistic interventions. The proposed journeys are all located in the city of Brussels, either as a physical trajectory through the city, a description or a free interpretation of a Brussels location, or as a memory or dream in the head of a Brussels citizen. These journeys reflect the diversity and cosmopolitanism of Brussels, its landscapes and secret spaces, its current or future social issues, its multitude of languages... Each journey tells a piece of history and stimulates a fresh look at the urban landscape.

Kifesh? Arrète de me ziar! Speel nog een pokoe, ofzo.

The Brussels vocabulary is far more extensive than can be found in dictionaries. It is a mishmash that the great Van Dale or Le Robert cannot understand. Brussels resonates with the sounds of 104 languages spoken and mixed within its territory on a daily basis. Brusselsspeaks is interested in the encounters, collisions and hybridisations that are played out and created between all these languages, and is looking for new Brussels dialects.

The project Imaginary Neighbourhoods seeks to reveal the topography of a neighbourhood through the imaginations of its occupants. The project takes place in various neighbourhoods, uses flexible methods and, at the end of a participatory and artistic process, leads to specific productions: a temporary cinema, a parliament, an exhibition, a publication, an audio-walk.... Each edition is carried out in collaboration with many local partners, community centers, schools, nursing homes, committees, cultural centres, with artists and in several languages. The first three editions took place in the Anneessens, Quartier Nord and Chant d'oiseau districts of Woluwe.

BNA-BBOT is a member of the Ecouter le Monde project, a project led by Radio France International (Monica Fantini) in partnership with BNA-BBOT, the Benedetto Marcello Conservatory in Venice, and the E-Jicom School of Journalism and New Media in Dakar. 
Écouter le Monde evokes cultures, languages and imaginations through sounds from Africa, America, Asia, Europe and Oceania. A Parisian morning in the hubbub of the metro with its slamming doors, another at the Bobo-Dioulasso market with the harangues of the vendors, a journey into the childhood sound memories of an inhabitant of the banks of the Danube, an excursion near the crackling glacier in Argentine Patagonia or even midnight sounded by the bells of Saint Mark's Square in Venice. All forms are explored: mosaics, Polaroids, snapshots, scenes from daily life, the suitcases and sound memories of inhabitants, artists and journalists... Écouter le Monde is also an internet platform whose vocation is to publish the sounds of the world, echoes of our daily lives, our territories and our humanity. This database aims to develop the practice, meaning and pleasure of listening. Écouter Le Monde is a project supported by RFI, E-Jicom, the École Supérieure de Journalisme, des Métiers de l'Internet et de la Communication in Dakar, the association BNA-BBOT Bruxelles Nous Appartient - Brussel Behoort Ons Toe -, the Benedetto Marcello Conservatory of Music in Venice and the Atelier du Bruit in Paris.

Écouter le Monde is broadcast every Saturday at 16:25 GMT, Sundays at 03:37 GMT and 05:55 GMT on RFI, and in Africa on Sundays at 07:25 GMT.
