Focus programmes

Throughout the 2018-2019 season we’ll be organising various focus programmes. These will form the backbone of the new season and the artistic trajectory plotted by Vooruit. In each case you can look forward to an extremely varied programme put together by partner organisations, guest curators and artists. With our focus programmes we aim to break out of the common trap of pigeonhole thinking: rather than limiting ourselves purely to one category like Podium or Literature, why not combine a talk, a masterclass, a performance and a party? It is this unique blend of different genres and disciplines that makes focus programmes at (and sometimes outside of) Vooruit such a unique experience.
