With more than 100 nationalities represented on its territory, Cureghem is an exceptionally multicultural neighbourhood. Walking through the streets of Cureghem is a bit like travelling the world. That's exactly what Switch invites you to do with Curegame. Use this fun and educational device to discover the story of five people who were born elsewhere and are now living in Brussels, and test your observation skills and knowledge.
  • Raise awareness among young people about migration-related issues through a historical lens
  • Encourage community life by highlighting the universality of these issues
Target audiences
  • Young people aged 12 to 18 in both in and out-of-school settings

A mobile and educational app

In 2016, as Switch was taking up residence in the heart of Cureghem, in Anderlecht, the whole team wanted to start a project about this fascinating neighbourhood. Walking through its streets, we discovered an exceptionally multicultural neighborhood, the result of more than a century of migrations.

That’s when we decided to develop Curegame in collaboration with the Solidarity Service of the municipality of Anderlecht. Curegame is a transmedia device with a mobile app at its core. The app can be downloaded on smartphones and tablets. Users embark on an interactive journey through the streets of Cureghem to learn about its people and history.

Allowing stories to cross paths in a documentary

We simultaneously produced a twenty-minute documentary to complement the first-hand experience. The documentary paints the portrait of five people who experienced migration at different times. With them, we address several universal issues such as leaving their own country, their relationship to their country of origin, integration and community life.

A guide to support the educators

In order to allow teachers and animators to deepen the educational work with two tools at their disposal, we designed an educational guide that provides a theoretical basis and two animation sequences of 50 minutes each.
