On this new episode: Melat Gebeyaw Nigussie, Artistic and General Director of Brussels multidisciplinary arts centre, Beursschouwburg, sits down at the loft.

Melat, who is also a writer, speaker and activist is the Ethiopian-Belgian champion for true intersectionality, shifting the way artists and the general population perceive public cultural spaces.

Hear Melat in conversation with Dominique Nzeyimana, sharing her story of growing up in Leuven and the expectations being a child of the diaspora brings along to discovering Black critical theory and how that opened a whole new world of thought.

She also lays out how she checks her own blind spots & privilege, what transparency towards creatives and artists looks like for her and she indulges Dominique with some fond memories of the inspiring global art scenes she encountered on some of her trips.
