Today’s young people are tomorrow’s decision-makers. Their opinion matters, which is why we want to give them a platform within Musea Brugge. They will decide which heritage buildings they find relevant enough to hand down to future generations.
Young adults between the ages of 16 and 24 years of age will be involved in the museum’s activities in a participatory manner. The youth crew will weigh in on the Musea Brugge’s collections, adding their own interpretation to this rich past and updating the stories and objects in our various locations. They will set to work with them, in their own way, bringing their own talent to the table, under the supervision of young artists and creatives.
Since the beginning of 2020, the youth crew of Musea Brugge has continued under the name 'Briklyoung'.
In 2021, Briklyoung was inspired by Strook's exhibition 'It's only a matter of time', which was on display at three of our locations: Groeningemuseum, Church of Our Lady and Sint-Janshospitaal. The project 'Tracé' started in November 2021 and ended in March 2022. During this project nine young people created, together with De Batterie, four art installations on outdoor locations between the exhibition sites. They immersed themselves in the world of memories, time and traces and offered a response to the exhibition of Strook.
