Belgium’s LIBITUM Residency
Belgium’s LIBITUM residency programme welcomes, supports and brings together Belgian and international artists from all disciplines to work on research, experimentation and personal creation in studios, workshops or on stage.
Initiated and run by Ad Lib, in partnership with the Rox, Pied en Coulisse and the villages of the Commune of Rouvroy, the Belgium’s LIBITUM residencies provide an environment for formal and informal work and exchange, where disciplines meet and artistic perspectives intersect. Among other things, they provide a framework conducive to the creation of new potential collaborations and synergies.
As part of their residencies, expert support is offered to artists according to the needs of their project.
Each week of residency is punctuated by exchanges between artists, collective feedback on projects, open rehearsals and public round tables.
The Belgium’s Libitum residency programme covers the costs of support, work space, meals and accommodation for each artist in residence. The programme also covers travel costs for international artists.
