The Belgian Tourist Office Brussels & Wallonia has collaborated with the prestigious Central Saint Martin's College of Arts and Design (University of the Arts London) to sponsor an art competition as a part of their Armistice Day commemorations.
The college's students, most of whom are the same age as the soldiers who fought in Belgium almost 100 years ago, have been asked to express what the First World War signifies to them and the emotions it stirs in them and thereby create a bridge across the generations.
This exhibition forms a part of the programme of events leading up to the centenaries of the outbreak of the First World War in 2014 and the cessation of hostilities in 2018 so that the Walloon and Brussels-Capital regions may honour and pay tribute to all those who fought for their freedom and for the freedom of others.
