Panorama Ring Ring gives you a unique 360° panoramic view of special locations in and around the Northern Quarter and canal zone, an area of Brussels which is on the eve of radical changes. The stories of Rua Breathnach, Pascal Verbeken, Ubah Cristina Ali Farah or Grażyna Plebanek lead your gaze around the invisible layers that make up the city – from history, politics and economy to culture – and the life stories that emerge from between the cracks.
