Partners of Rubi

In order to offer a fantastic cultural programme, Rubi cooperates with cultural partners in the city. Discover them on this page.

AMUZ wants to offer and promote cultural, educational and scientifically based activities in the field of music and related artistic expressions, both in AMUZ and on location, at regional, national and international level. To this end, AMUZ organises concerts, courses, lectures and other activities in line with this. The principles of historical performance practice are always central to these activities.

Historical performance practice means that a musical creation is performed on the basis of the current information about the original composition and about the instruments with which it was performed at the time of its creation, without detracting from the artistic interpretation by the performing musicians.

Cinema Cartoon's has been an established part of Antwerp city life since 1978. Despite Antwerp's reputation as a bustling film city, in recent years Cartoon's was the only place where the film lover could still enjoy himself in a cosy, authentic atmosphere. When the cinema was declared bankrupt on 24 September 2013, many reactions and calls for rescue action soon followed to ensure that this gem with a rich history was not lost. The Lumière Group put its shoulder to the wheel and took over the Cartoon's. Lumière wants to continue Cartoon's in the same familiar spirit, but a substantial investment was absolutely necessary to give this Antwerp institution a new look. 

Cinema Cartoon's wants to present itself as a city cinema and opts for a varied choice of films that will appeal to all ages. From in-depth documentaries, award-winning feature films, modern classics and small audience films to unconventional genre films. A monthly programme ensures that you are well informed about the upcoming films and playing hours.

The Arenberg has a rich history as a cultural house. Over the years, the theatre underwent a metamorphosis. It all started in 1852 with the foundation of a ballroom by the Cercle artistique, littéraire et scientifique d'Anvers. In 1929, the ballroom was converted into a theatre. In the 1960s, the theatre was renovated in its present form. From an elitist club in the nineteenth century, the Arenberg evolved into a cultural house with a wide range of activities in the centre of the city. A city that has changed just as radically in recent decades. The Antwerp of tomorrow is now gradually taking shape.

De Kern is a theatre and concert hall near De Bist. With its varied programme, De Kern aims to be the beating cultural heart of Wilrijk.

Here you can see comedians at work, hear authors read, attend concerts and subscribe to the better theatre. Change of food makes you eat, and that's why we like to keep our offer varied, broad and multifaceted. De Kern shows films every week that move and make you think. (Cinema De Kern is the third largest Flemish cinema culture centre. Every week we programme at least two digital film screenings, without the stench of lukewarm popcorn).

We present strong theatre performances for young and old almost every week and when it comes to music we have a lot (from cabaret to pop and world jazz). A wide range of lectures, workshops and long-term courses appeal to all sorts of lesser-known associations in Wilrijk. And we often work on location. We do this for example in the Community Centre on the Bist, the Bist Library (the most stable grower in the Antwerp library network), the many Wilrijk service centres, the many beautiful Wilrijk parks, etc.
