Brave Little Belgium is a content platform curated by Creative Belgium.
We look at Belgium's top work from an international perspective.
'Why is it brave and typically Belgian?'

our mission statement

100 years ago, they called us brave little belgium.
Or 'these little fuckers.' We had our own ideas.
When they asked us to step in line, we peed on their shoes.
Dangerous. But brave.
That typifies us, Belgians.
So let's be proud of our brave ideas. And show them.
By gathering the best work from hellhole and beyond,
we make the rest pee their pants again.
Because the little fuckers are back.

Stardust for Bowie

Studio Brussels is a popular public radio station in Belgium. When David Bowie died, the station knew millions of fans around the world were feeling aggrieved and wanted to create a fitting tribute. Scientists of the Belgian Royal Space Observatory helped to create a unique homage in space. 7 stars in the vicinity of Mars were identified and Studio Brussels registered a unique lightning-bolt shaped constellation in Bowie’s name. The homage in the sky was linked to an online tribute page, Stardust for Bowie, which was developed with Google Sky. The page allows fans to create personal tributes within the constellation’s borders, whether it’s naming a favorite song or leaving a short message to remember Bowie’s legacy. Together, each of those tributes combine to brighten the interior of the constellation, making it easy to pinpoint in the Google Sky galaxy.
