WIPCOOP = Work In Progress Cooperative, a unique cooperation model with numerous partner organisations and artists in Antwerp, Brussels, Mechelen, Leuven and Ghent. Together we form a committed network of small and large culture houses, unknown and established artists and numerous people active in the arts sector. Each one feeds the network from his own expertise and strength. Together, we mix and match the right support for emerging artists who are creating new work.
WIPCOOP = A development track all year round where artists, from a Work In Progress (#WORKINPROGRESS) to showcases (#SESSIONS) and finished performances (#PLAYS) straightforwardly seek the dialogue with a community of listeners: the public, other artists, programmers, dramaturges, …
In short, WIPCOOP = making space for new voices, stories, forms and languages in the arts.
