PROGRAMME BROCHURE

Antwerp commemorates the centenary of the First World War and building bridges In 1914 Antwerp briefly was the capital of Belgium. A last beacon of hope for a population on the run and a country that was on the verge of war. One hundred years later the Peace Centre has organised a contemporary commemoration programme with international appeal, along with more than 50 partners. The commemoration will emphasise the dark side of war and the necessity of peace. We have chosen to focus as much as possible on personal testimonies and references from daily life, in order to reach a broad public, with particular attention to children and young people. The interaction between the past and the present is woven throughout the commemoration programme entitled Antwerp ’14-’18. In addition to focusing on the past, the project continually reflects back to the present. It will also serve to enhance the image of Antwerp, highlighting the city as attractive, avant-garde and contemporary. A unique and human story of refugees, art and a pontoon bridge across the River Scheldt.

Bridge programme Walk across the bridge that commemorates the centenary of WWI, following in the footsteps of the many thousands of refugees, on 3, 4 or 5 October. Meet your family and friends in Grote Markt where the experience starts and you can obtain further information about the project and tickets. Depart in Steenplein, with your bridge ticket, for the one-way crossing to the Left Bank. We recommend reserving tickets beforehand through ww.antwerpen14-18.be. On Friday evening 3 October around 7 p.m. Antwerp’s church bells will ring in the construction of the bridge. Go to the Scheldt quays for a good view of the opening spectacular “Les Sirènes de la Paix” by Cie Mécanique Vivante. Enjoy the amazing sound and light show while the Belgian and Dutch sappers build the pontoon bridge. The public can then walk across the beautifully lit bridge in the magical glow of the bridge lights. On the Left Bank you can enjoy a diverse cultural programme, which extends from Frederik van Eedenplein to the Field of Buoys (Boeienweide), from Thonetlaan to the Pedestrian Tunnel. The programme will be organised throughout the weekend and is free for everyone, even for those who did not purchase a bridge ticket. The bridge ticket also serves as your free or discounted admission to the 1 temporary exhibitions in the participating museums. (see map)

On Friday evening 3 October we will organise Urban Memorial, an urban evening programme for young people. Let’s Go Urban provides a platform for spoken word artists, a live band, DJs and dancers, to take an urban trip through time. The programme will start around 8 p.m. on the Left Bank (Linkeroever).

Everyone is welcome to join in in the dance programme on Saturday evening. Radio Modern – which has been renamed Radio Musette for the occasion – will take you back in time on a journey to the heyday of the Belle Epoque, as of 7 p.m. during a “bal populaire” with accordion music.

(Friday 3 October from 8 p.m. to 1 a.m.)

(Saturday 4 October from 7 p.m. to 1 a.m.)

4 OCTOBER, FROM 7 P.M. TO 1 A.M, ON THE LEFT BANK, ANTWERP WWW.RADIOMODERN.BE WWW.NEORETROAGENCY.COM

Let’s Go Urban is the reference for urban culture and art in Antwerp. The organisation, which was founded five years ago, has 800 members and has already performed at The Night of The Proms and in the Arenberg Theatre as well as working with the Flanders Opera. Sihame El Kaouakibi is the founder and director of Let’s Go Urban as well as the patron of the Antwerpen ‘14-’18 project. The Konichiwa Crew DJ collective met at Let’s Go Urban and is also part of the line-up of the urban memorial. Further information: www.letsgourban.be

The perfect opportunity to dress up in your most luxurious Belle Epoque outfit. Ladies, to go to the ball you will need to wear multi-layered ankle-length skirts or dresses that emphasise your waist. Combine this with a pretty lace blouse in a delicate colour and a large hat. Gentlemen, we hope to see you in a white shirt with a sleeveless waistcoat and a boater on your head. You are welcome to parade around with a cane. If you rent your outfit from Huis Baeyens they will give you a 10% discount if you mention that you need it for “Radio Musette”. And since you are dressed to the nines do not forget to pose for the camera obscure, alongside our veterans in their camp – a small reference to the Great War. After having learnt the basics of the foxtrot you are ready to waltz the night away to the orchestra’s music. End the night on a lovely note with the scratching records of the Radio Musette DJ, who will seamlessly mix oldies with balroom classics. 2 Vive la guingette! (see map)

Defence As of 4 August 2014 Defence will also commemorate World War I. For four years this important historical event will be put in the spotlight during various events and ceremonies. Defence is also contributing to Antwerp ‘14-‘18. As was the case 100 years ago a pontoon bridge will be built across the River Scheldt. To span the river’s complete width (350 metres) the Belgian and Dutch sappers will join forces to successfully complete this feat. More than 150 men from the two Engineers Battalions and 40 trucks of materials will be used for this special achievement. In so doing the Belgian Defence shows that it has the know-how and techniques to quickly build such structures, along with their Dutch partners. In the run-up to the bridge festival soldiers with all types of specialities will assure the assembly, assembly, opening and securing of the pontoon bridge, which will be the “pièce de résistance” of the festivities with which Antwerp remembers WWI. As always Defence wishes to contribute to a safer society. A Defence job is not an ordinary job. You will always have something interesting to share, with your family and friends. Further information about jobs with Defence available online at www.mil.be/jobs or contact the Recruitment Contact Centre at 0800/33348.

Ethias, an innovative insurance company, that is passionate about people and society Ethias, the third biggest insurance company in Belgium, is committed to jointly developing campaigns to raise awareness about democratic values, the dangers of ideas that undermine freedom and the duty of remembrance. It considers it its duty to keep the memory of the past alive, without therefore resorting to nostalgia while also paying attention to the needs of our contemporary society. Ethias strongly supports associations that bridge the gap between the past and present. In Flanders it has contributed to In Flanders Fields in Ypres and the Antwerp 14-18 project of the Peace Centre. The highlight of the Antwerp commemoration obviously is the symbolic reconstruction of the pontoon bridge across the River Scheldt, a military feat. So naturally Ethias has underwritten the non-military aspects of this exceptional event.

Ethias strives to be a sustainable and innovative stakeholder in the social economy, based on its social, societal and environmental concerns and awareness. Each of its actions ties in with an overall corporate strategy that is founded on two important pillars, i.e. a sense of responsibility and commitment. It also explains why Ethias has signed the United Nations’ Global Pact. Corporate Sustainable Entrepreneurship is in the DNA of Ethias but the company is also the driving force behind the promotion of environment-friendly initiatives with its insurance customers, public authorities and other external partners based on its sense of citizenship.

Bridges. But also locks, cranes, ships and so much more .


In the port of Antwerp you’ll find the largest museum collection of cranes in the world. The collection consists of 18 cranes built by 15 Belgian and foreign manufacturers. Most of them are now listed monuments.

Cranes are first mentioned in the port of Antwerp in a document dated 1263. That’s more than 750 years ago! The oldest crane still in working condition stands beside the MAS museum.

44 That’s how many docks there are in the port of Antwerp!

Did you know ...

Once the Deurganck dock lock enters operation in 2016 it will be the largest dock in the world, with a length of 500 metres and a width of 68 m. Simply excavating that volume of sand took nearly three years!

Antwerp is a major international port, and so ships from all over the world call here. Such as the Mary Maersk, one of the largest container carriers in the world, able to hold no fewer than 18,000 containers.

38 There are 127 km of quays in the port of Antwerp, enough to stretch from Antwerp to Ieper...

That’s how many bridges there are in the port of Antwerp!

... that a pontoon bridge was first built across the river Scheldt in 1585? In this way the Duke of Parma, Alexander Farnese, closed the river to shipping and completed the encirclement of the city. Antwerp was forced to surrender and fell into Spanish hands once more.

The port of Antwerp handles an average of 8.5 million containers per year. That’s nearly 1000 per hour! In fact Antwerp is the second-largest container port in Europe after Rotterdam.

9 Last year 14,220 seagoing ships and 57,044 barges called at the port of Antwerp.

That’s the number of locks in the port of Antwerp.

25 FOMU I FOTOMUSEUM OF THE PROVINCE OF ANTWERP:

Shooting Range. Photography in the firing line? The ‘Great War’ was the first large-scale conflict that was recorded on celluloid and film. The fledgling media appeared to have unprecedented powers as the all-seeing eye, a reminder, but also as a weapon. Images not only chronicle a conflict, they also play a crucial role in it. Shooting Range highlights the way in which this happened in a conflict that kept the world in its grip for four years. This exhibition demonstrates how stationary images were used in newspapers, magazines, postcards or for military purposes. Propaganda and anti-war films are used to supplement the image of this global conflict. Historical pieces are displayed in their original forms. The app ‘Shooting Range’ will also be available for download at this exhibition, for Android & iOS.

31 RED STAR LINE MUSEUM:

Far from the war? Belgian immigrants in America during World War I In the early twentieth century, in the years running up to the First World War, Belgian migration to the United States peaked. When the German army occupied Belgium in 1914 all trans-Atlantic passenger traffic from Antwerp ground to a halt. Belgian Americans suddenly found themselves cut off from their motherland and in many cases from their family. How did they experience the war? How did they express their solidarity with their country of origin? With the Detroit Gazette as their primary source, Belgians in the United States learned of how those they had left behind were faring in their home country. What role did the ships of the Red Star Line play, and were the passengers on the ships from the right camp? What was that song that Irving Berlin wrote about Belgians?
