The (non-profit making) association

Since 1983, Akadia explores richness of the Belgian's and Brussels heritage. We develop many cultural projects, especially in Brussels: architecture, urbanism, culture, plastics arts and ideology since Middle Ages to nowadays. 

See and understand our own city and its architectural development, approach the artistic creation and give it a sens: this are activities that we want to share with our public. 

Specialists of architectural patrimony and of contempory art, we (re)discover the city through guided tours and conferences in several languages, and we develop an "look pedagogy" because we are convinced that see and understand our own city  helps to preserve and defend it. 
Our activities:
  • Guided tours by foot, bus or metro
  • Conferencies
  • Exceptional tours of interiors
  • Enterprise events 
Our expertise :
  • Our team is made up of 60 historians and art historians guides-lecturer. Each guide has its specialities (age, subject matter, artistic field), which give us a high quality of visit. We offer visits in french, dutch, english, german, italian, spanish and hungarian.
