Open Call


Open call for professional creators and artists

The Reiefestival is a new arts festival that connects heritage and history with contemporary performing arts. The festival takes place at various open-air locations on and around the canals of Bruges and will run over several days in August 2023. It focuses on new creations.

Every edition the festival will work with a certain theme. For 2023 the theme is ‘Faith’.

Faith in this matter does not only refer to the different world religions but also to personal forms of faith, to conviction and to forms of superstition who are deeply rooted in our daily life. It contains the spiritual experience that allows to leave everyday reality and awareness behind and dissolve into a bigger whole. What is the role of faith today and does it differ from the distant or recent past?  Where does faith end and does it become an unwavering truth?

Through the inspiration box, the theme is explained and illustrated by all kinds of props by heritage organisations from Bruges. The inspiration box accompanies the open call and can help you kick-start your programme proposal.

Interested? You can submit a proposal until 30 November 2021.

The Reiefestival is an initiative of Brugge Plus, in cooperation with  Concertgebouw Brugge and KAAP, with the support of the city of Bruges.
