“Culture brings people together”

According to Hassiba Benbouali (57), diversity and culture go hand in hand thanks to Paspartoe.

Paspartoe is very simple. For every cultural event that you visit, you earn one point. With the points, you can buy tickets to other performances. And thanks to the reduced prices for low-income Brussels residents, these are accessible to everyone.

I have been using Paspartoe now for about five years. Recently, I went to a poetry evening in Elsene/Ixelles, and I remember going with my son years ago to the Anima festival in Flagey. These are nice memories.

The power of Paspartoe is that it enables people of different backgrounds to discover culture and engage in dialogue. We need to get to know and accept each other’s differences. Only then can you live together peacefully.”
