Kunstenfestivaldesarts is a yearly occasion of being together, sharing visions and venues in our city. In the current situation, we know this year’s edition will not take place as initially planned. We are working on different scenarios, following the evolution of the measures, and keeping first and foremost in mind the safety of the audience, the artists and of our team. A communication will follow soon. Thanks for your understanding and support. Stay safe!
Ticket sale on hold
Given the current situation, we unfortunately have to postpone the sale of tickets on our website and at our box our office in Recyclart / De Vaartkapoen. It will therefore not be possible to buy tickets from 24 March as we initially announced online and in our programme book.
Festival centre 2020: Recyclart / De Vaartkapoen
For this year’s edition, the Kunstenfestivaldesarts has deliberately chosen to put its centre back in the beating heart of the Brussels Canal Zone, in Rue de Manchesterstraat in Molenbeek. This is the first time in the festival’s recent history that the same venue has been chosen as the festival centre for two years in a row: in doing so, the festival wishes to break with the need for constant renewal. The ties that were successfully built up during the previous edition with the existing local initiatives and networks will be perpetuated and strengthened.
The programme is online
Out of respect for the work of the artists, as well as that of the festival’s team, we would already like to share with you the programme of this 2020 edition as we conceived it, composed of 34 artistic projects, 21 world premieres, and 7 projects for the Free School.
Cancellation of the launch program scheduled for March 24th
Following the decisions taken by the Belgian Federal Government concerning COVID-19 (Coronavirus), we are constrained to cancel the programme launch originally scheduled for March 24th.
Progamme launch 2020
On Tuesday 24 March we will be unveiling the full programme of Kunstenfestivaldesarts 2020. The Programme Launch is being held at Decoratelier (Rue de Manchester 17, Molenbeek) beginning at 6pm, where we'll be toasting this new edition of the festival.
