Programming in the Festival Heart
We have a new Festival Heart this year, and in the middle of the vibrant heart of cultural Groningen; De Kunstwerf. The place to gather before going to a performance, chill out, talk after, get into The ARENA. During the day a place for meeting, eating, and crew activities and in the evening a place for artists to show their productions on this new stage.
Makers using different disciplines such as spoken word artists, deejays, rappers and visual artists. Where you as an audience do not have to sit but the artists do want your attention. For this programming we collaborate with Noordstaat. Noordstaat is the place in the North where upcoming and starting (hip-hop) artists accelerate and grow in their talent. We love to see and meet you here, be surprised!
