‘If the world was an understandable place, art would not exist.’ Albert Camus wrote.

Art Festival Watou is an exceptional meeting place for poets, writers, artists and other creative minds brought together in a unique space for a creative dialogue . Art Festival Watou is more than just an exhibition between language and image. Under the title SUMMER SENSES plans have been made around various events during the ten consecutive weekends this year for mini-happenings and meetings with other art and culture disciplines all focusing on the theme “The Strength of Empathy”. The festival will include readings, performances, art installations as well as the popular “Wall”, “Poetic Cinema” and “Hall of Fame” for the visitors to explore.
The festival is a space for the entire family to investigate and enjoy.

Some of the artists participating this summer are:
Wim Helsen, Athos Burez, Benjamin Vandewalle, Barbara Rottiers, Katharina Smets, Inne Eysermans, Joke Devynck, Delphine Lecompte, Sabien Clement, Soheila Sokhanvari, Michaël Vandebril, Max Temmerman and Tom Liekens

The entire calendar of all these events can be found here and on facebook from the end of June onwards.
