The city of Poperinge, inspirator Koen Vanmechelen and the curators of the Watou Arts Festival, James Putnam and Michaël Vandebril, give us a first glimpse of Watou 2022. This edition focuses on interconnectedness, on interaction between the village and the artists, on the interplay between art and poetry.
Visit Watou 2022
Arts Festival Watou 2022 will take place from July 2 to September 4. The arts festival can be visited from Wednesday to Monday, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. each time. Tuesday is the closing day. Tickets can be purchased from mid-May via the website for 20 euros (standard price).
In Watou itself, visitors will recognize familiar locations. A number of new locations will provide a surprising route through the village. Watou remains the base of the arts festival and showcases the bulk of the artists and poets. Just like last year, Kasteel De Lovie will again be part of the route this edition.
