Bring the whole family to the festival! Whether it’s to partake in creative workshops for children, artistic projects accessible to the youngest among us, or a collaboration with the babysitting services, the festival is absolutely open to young and old alike.

Every Sunday throughout the festival, we are organising a creative workshop for children. So parents — drop the little ones off at the festival centre and attend a show in peace at one of the theatres in the area. Participation is free! 

Sound, music and movement are part of their programme, which is sure to delight the youngsters every Sunday in May. Each afternoon, three different artists will work on connecting contemporary art and youth through a joint creation. During this experimental workshop, children are invited to be part of the artist's process. A moment to reflect together and to (re)discover contemporary art by doing for the youngest, who are not yet sufficiently involved in a world that almost equals their imagination. Together, they discover how to express themselves physically and creatively through a crash course in modern dance, for example; they become part of an improvised choir that sings about cheese or they explore together how you could make art in public spaces. 

During this workshop, parents are not allowed to be present in order to allow the children's full creativity to unfold.
