Landscape of the Imagination

The new edition of the Watou Arts Festival focuses on the power of the imagination.

“We are in need of new landscapes. Places of experimentation, refuges and
spaces where a new humanity can be born.” – Koen Vanmechelen, inspirator

‘Landscape of the Imagination’ will take place from July 6 to September 1. Artists and poets will showcase the power of the imagination, in dialogue with each other and with several unique locations in and around the village and castle De Lovie.

The interconnectedness between the village, the landscape, the poets and the artists is what makes this festival so unique. Meet the curators, discover the participating artists & poets, or check out the Watou live calendar full of performances, concerts & engaging encounters. Experience art at unique locations, cycle past climate poetry with the bicycle route Swimming lessons for later or listen to the poetry podcast House of the poet.
