What is our mission?

Concertgebouw Brugge is a non-profit organization. Concertgebouw Brugge wants to be a reputable global player in the fields of music and contemporary dance. With its wide range of interdisciplinary activities and the permanent opening up of its building, the Concertgebouw is also a center for visual art, sound art, literature and architecture. By focusing on creation, creativity and interaction with artists, at every stage of their career, the Concertgebouw wants to give the arts innovative stimuli, and to attract and involve a diverse audience and guide them on a path of discovery. In this way, Concertgebouw Brugge also enhances the international reputation of the city of Bruges and of Flanders.

In addition to its own artistic programme, the Concertgebouw makes its accommodation available to others for events of all types. Discover all possibilities on
