Multiple-day arts festival in Bruges
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. The programma is being composed by an open call adressed to professional artists and makers. By means of the inspiration box, the theme is explained and illustrated by all kinds of props by heritage organisations from Bruges.
Through the inspiration box, the theme ‘faith’ is explained and illustrated by all kinds of props by heritage organisations from Bruges. The inspiration box accompanied the open call and could help you kick-start your programme proposal. Also, they who want to know more, can browse through the different aspects of the theme.
The deadline for the open call is expired, we now get to work on the many submitted proposals.
The Reiefestival is an initiative of Brugge Plus, in cooperation with Concertgebouw Brugge and KAAP, with the support of the city of Bruges.
