Above all, WIPCOOP organizes the annual Work In Progress days. These take place between October and December, in Antwerp, Brussels, Ghent and Mechelen. Each of about 20 artists have half an hour to show a new creation to a public of professionals and curious spectators. After each presentation, approximately 10 producers, playwrights and programme directors enter into an hour long conversation, with each of the creators. Together they will take a look at concrete paths, contacts or customized support, for each of the artists and creations.
