Stadsfestival 'Barokke Influencers'

2023 will be the year of Baroque Influencers, a brand-new city festival in Antwerp which is being organized by UCSIA.

The seventeenth century was decisive for the development of Antwerp and the Low Countries. The city festival Baroque Influencers shows the influence of the baroque and the central role the Jesuits played in Antwerp. Why are we (still) children of the baroque?

Experience the stunning exhibitions, breathtaking music concerts, and many other captivating events!
