TIK FESTIVAL PROGRAM

At the TIK Festival you will find many fantastic and surprising artworks and installations. All around the three spaces in the festival (OKNO, iMal and QO-2) you’ll discover what we’ve been up to these last years. There’s a lot to see.
But that’s not all, there’s plenty for you to DO as well! You can learn how to make hanging gardens, or how to make your own solarbot creature. You will be able to explore some of the principles used in the making of the artworks. Then there are unusual city walks and bike tours, to discover the environment and Brussels in a different ecological way, and to bring back rural stories and plants from the urban setting. Finally we have daily evening performances where the artists perform new work related to the Time Inventors’ Kabinet ideas. The inner yard at Koolmijnenkaai 30 will be the meeting point for all activities and where the MarketPlace take place.
There’s a great deal of activities for you to join and participate in during the TIK Festival!
