Visitors Programme Plat(e)form(e) : image of the 2023 edition

Visitors Programme Plat(e)form(e) 2024

Visitors programme Plat(e)form(e)
From Monday, 13 May 2024 at 10:00 to Tuesday, 14 May 2024 at 20:00 at Brussels.

Join a focused two-day program for peer-to-peer meetings and discovering the unique performing arts scene of Flanders, Wallonia and Brussels.

Plat(e)form(e) was born from a desire to support and highlight the local scene by drawing on the presence of international professionals and promoting new networks and lasting exchanges. Through work presentations, networking sessions and collective discussions, we want to open a temporary space for reciprocity, exchange and mutual reflection on what it means to create and present (inter)nationally today. 

We happily invite professionals from the performing arts field to join the program from 13-14 May 2024 in Brussels.

Plat(e)form(e) invites local and international guests interested to participate in the full two-day program. We are looking for professionals in the performing arts (programmers, directors, festival organisers…) with a curiosity for new Belgian work. We can host a total of 50 participants but can only cover a two-night stay for 25 international guests (one professional per organisation). We will function with "First come, first served".

Join a focused two-day program for peer-to-peer meetings and discovering the unique performing arts scene of Flanders, Wallonia and Brussels
