A decade ago I moved to Molenbeek, when I found a job in the youth organization JES. There I started organizing tours to Brussels centre for our trainees and quickly discovered that the canal area itself was worth visiting, because of his industrial past! So now I combine my passion for history with my presentation skills as a journalist. This area is rapidly changing, attracting more and more artists and young entrepreneurs. Who else than a local guy who is both artist and entrepreneur could be your guide in this undiscovered Brussels hamlet?
