Workspacebrussels is a residency space and incubator for artistic development in the performing arts. Artists can come to us for workspace, exchange and feedback. In the selection of projects, our focus is on innovative and urgent practices, and on unexpected crossovers between genres, artistic languages and work models. Each year we welcome around 50 artists and collectives, who together form a vibrant artistic community. In addition, workspacebrussels is a presentation platform: artists can share or test their creative process with an audience during Dag van de Dans, Never Walk Alone and our annual festival.
