We cordially invite representatives of all media to publish information and for the full coverage of
the LIVE VIDEO RECORDING of the Change Our Game – song, this Sunday 27 th of November in Brussels, Molenbeek.
It is part of the PlayandPeace Project and has the objective to offer a platform to all citizens of
Brussels to participate and realise the challenge together. During the day there will also be various
moments of live transmission on the ‘PlayAndPeace’ Facebook account. Please find below a list of the participating artists.
For weeks a group of Belgium and Dutch artists have been working together to make a special song for PlayandPeace, called “ChangeOurGame”. The song is a reflection of the strategy Molenbeek made in cooperation with PlayandPeace, and the Johan Cruyff Foundation.
A central theme of the challenge is bringing all people of Brussels and beyond together, and to give them a platform to participate. That is why with realising a special song for the city and Europe all
citizens are invited to join in, and show their commitment to working and living together in peace.
