Arsene 50 wants to gather all that Brussels has to offer and make it available to an ever-expanding audience with a craving for culture. We focus on accessibility, choice, price, spontaneity, but also on the discovery of new things. Not only does Arsene 50 strive to benefit organizers and spectators, we also aim to promote and reinforce the cultural image of Brussels.
Arsene 50 was created in 2003 by the Fondation pour les Arts/Stichting voor de Kunsten and is managed today by visit.brussels.
Arsene 50 aims to facilitate access to culture at an attractive price. We offer a wide, daily updated and varied choice. Furthermore, the last-minute aspect of Arsene 50 allows you to visit a cultural event without having to make a choice or reservation in advance. If a chosen event is fully booked, you have the possibility to instantly choose another one. Important to us is the opportunity to (re)discover new places, companies, bands, shows, large popular productions or smaller, more intimate performances.
Employees of neighbouring companies, Brussels residents, Walloons and Flemings, tourists and hotel guests in the city centre: they are all attracted by the concept and the favourable prices. With its wide and varied choice, Arsene 50 aims to appeal to all ages and population groups.
Each day, more than 200 seats are available. Our daily updated offer includes many types of events, such as theatre, world music, classical music, jazz, chanson, shows, opera, dance, film, comedy and festivals.
