The city of Poperinge is looking forward to a new edition of Arts Festival Watou in summer 2023. Edith Doove has been asked as the new curator and will take the visual arts under her wing. “As a jury member of Patchwork, I visited the arts festival last summer. I was strongly impressed. I am therefore very pleased to have been selected as curator for the 2023 edition and to usher in a next phase of development. In that edition, there will be an even stronger emphasis on new creations, because I think that this is precisely where the festival can play an important role,” says Doove.
