WIPCOOP: WORK IN PROGRESS 2019

Mestizo Arts Platform & KVS
20.11.2019
10:00

For the fourth year running, WIPCOOP – Work In Progress Cooperation – takes over KVS. New urban talent from the Brussels scene will show work in progress and take the audience on the wonderful journey behind their creative process. After each showcase, artists will be able to engage in an hourlong discussion with arts professionals from all over the country (dramaturges, programmers, art critics, etc ...) during which the audience is invited to be inspired by pitch breaks that introduce innovative artistic initiatives in the city.

The WIP-formula, which has been an important part of Mestizo Art Platform (MAP)’s work since 2009, is a cross-pollination between about forty organisations, to fine-tune their antennae and help new urban artists find their way from the streets to the stage. At MAP’s instigation, and with a cooperative approach, the formula has blossomed into an intercity collaboration between Antwerp, Ghent and Brussels.
