Open Call 2021

Open Call 2021

The 2nd edition of Park Poétik, a participatory summer of arts will take place between July 1st and August 31st in the municipalities of Saint-Gilles and Forest.

This free, sustainable and multilingual open-air initiative invites the young and not as young to discover artistic and multidisciplinary surprises, full of poetry and wonder, meaningful without being condescending, and thoughtful without being afraid to color outside the lines. It is a dream of socio-cultural enthusiasts willing to share.

During the summer, more than 100 activities will take place according to different concepts, selected by the "dream catchers" and in line with the philosophy expressed in the Park Poétik charter!

Send us your proposals: artist installations, shows, (walking) performances, workshops, citizen interventions…
