Workspacebrussels is a laboratory for artistic development in the performing arts. They focus on research, experimentation and creation. Openness, transparency and curiosity are central to them, both in our discussions with artists and in the choice of projects and makers. They love new forms and unexpected crossovers between genres, artistic languages and ways of working.
Young and independent artists can come here for studio space, exchange and feedback. Every year they welcome about 50 makers and collectives who together form a vibrant and diverse community. For several projects per year, they also provide financial and/or administrative support.
Our residency programme offers free workspace for research, exchange and creation in the performing arts. Are you an artist, researcher or art worker in the field of the performing arts, and are you looking for a studio or workspace in Brussels? Twice a year we invite you to share a research or project proposal with us via our open call.
Residents are invited to share their research, practice or work with the team and/or their co-residents at the end of the residency. This can also take the form of a (semi)public try-out.
Thanks to the intensive collaboration with a number of partners in the city they can offer artists a wide range of spaces. Kaaitheater Arts Centre, Les Brigittines Arts Centre for Movement, and dance companies Rosas and Ultima Vez reserve a part of their studio space for Workspacebrussels' activities.
The possibilities for accommodation depend on the type of residency. Travel expenses are not covered.
Please note that the studios are not technically equipped and that no technical support is included. To the extent possible, we do provide basic technical material, such as a sound system, micro, projector and so on.
Residents can rely on basic dramaturgical support from the house dramaturge.
Every Tuesday we invite all residents who are working in the studios at that moment for lunch, together with our team.
Our library is open to all residents and is developed on the basis of their suggestions.
A quiet street in the heart of the city Brussels, next to Kaaistudio's, within proximity of theatre venues, museums, shops, public transport, bars, night life etc.
