Congo-Belgium: a complex history
During this workshop you and your group will analyze important milestones of the Belgian colonization in Congo.
An interactive introduction demonstrates that colonization is only part of a long history of Africa. It also discusses the close links between the AfricaMuseum and the Belgian colonization in Central Africa.
In the gallery Colonial History of the museum, students then start a group search for elements related to colonial themes that have been developed in various comic books. Later, they meet again to bring the results of this search together into a whole.
Finally, in a dedicated workshop space, the group listens to testimonials and views of the colonial period, which offers the spark for initiating a debate that aims to bridges between the past and the present.
This tour will always include the following galleries:
- Long History
- Colonial History and Independance
Or if you’d prefer some fresh air, head for the adjacent park of Tervuren.
