Since 2004, deBuren, located in the centre of Brussels, has been the place in the European capital city where the culture of the Low Countries – the Netherlands and Flanders – has remained alive and kicking. The Flemish and Dutch governments together took the initiative of founding the Flemish-Dutch House deBuren as a cultural institution and as a place for debate and reflection where people are happy to both listen and talk to one another. deBuren is intended to provide a forum for the art, culture, society and politics of the Low Countries and Europe in the heart of the Belgian capital.
