The experience of offering poems at places where they normally are not seen, indicated that each person is open to poetry even if they are not looking for it or are ven convinced that peoems are not their thing. The contact between maker and public enhanced this experience.

Our base in Ghent
Our base at number 20 is part of a mansion built by a single seamstress in 1903. Her story and the one of Karel Van Hulthem have inspired us and led to the performance Vrouw met Boek (Woman with Book) in 2018.
Our base in Brussels
Villa Montald was built in 1909 and was inhabited by the painter who gave his name to it. He lived there to paint and to give painting lessons. René Magritte was one of his students.
