After a first edition of Patchwork in 2021, the project will continue in the summer of 2022 as an invitation to each artist to participate in Watou 2023 from their own perspective on the village. During ‘Patchwork’ different artists explore how Watou as a village and as a community can connect with the artists and vice versa. Interested artists can register through an open call to participate in this project and apply for Watou Arts Festival 2023. Registration will be open as from 1 March and will run until 25 April 2022.
May the countdown begin!
