Le BELvue et les jeunes

Le BELvue souhaite être au plus près de ses visiteurs, et tout particulièrement les jeunes. La mission de l’institution est de sensibiliser les visiteurs à la Belgique, son histoire, son fonctionnement et ses spécificités. Mais comment attirer les jeunes ? Quelle image ont-ils des musées en général ? Qu’attendent-ils d’un lieu tel que le BELvue ? 

Pour répondre à ces questions, et pouvoir proposer une offre adaptée aux jeunes, le BELvue a fait le pari de travailler avec eux.

Depuis 2014, le BELvue effectue un trajet participatif avec des jeunes, dont voici les fruits.

Logo Multibel BELvue

Since 2017 : multiBEL

(en)multiBEL est un groupe de jeunes bruxellois âgés de 14 à 18 ans, pas vraiment fans de musée au départ. Accompagnés par les animateurs du Foyer, ils ont répondu positivement à l’appel du BELvue à prendre part à la vie du musée. 

Leur objectif : montrer aux jeunes de leur âge une image différente du BELvue et des musées en général.

Ils se retrouvent chaque mercredi après-midi et travaillent sur le rôle et le fonctionnement d’un musée, l’offre pour les jeunes, la communication, l’organisation d’activités et de différents évènements…

multiBEL s’investit à fond dans les projets menés au musée; aime le partage, l’échange, la découverte, mais surtout… créer et réaliser des projets ensemble ! 

Our partner : Le Foyer des jeunes de Molenbeek

(en)Basé à Molenbeek, le Foyer des jeunes organise l’accueil extra-scolaire pour les enfants et adolescent du quartier. Des activités ludiques, sportives, du soutien scolaire et des ateliers créatifs sont proposés aux jeunes d’une manière cohérente et organisée. Toutes ces activités font partie d’un projet pédagogique de large envergure qui a comme ligne de conduite la responsabilisation et la citoyenneté des enfants, des jeunes et de leurs parents dans un cadre de cohésion sociale.
