WHO: site-specific artists.
WHAT: Sideways is a translocal, experimental festival for contemporary art and cultural research, exploring different ‘pathscapes' in the northern region of Belgium. This first-time event will unfold on the go across a four week period in the summer of 2012. It foresees a broad program of visual art, walks, live art and site-specific interventions. The project is a joint initiative of an environmental NGO (Trage Wegen), a visual arts' centre (Verbeke Foundation) and an artist collective (Glasbak).
The festival invites artists and audiences to explore the many non-motorized paths and trails folded into the spaces of our everyday life. The event itself moves beyond the conventional spaces of art display and reception. The Sideways programme stages diverse actions and situations on the open-air sites of paths and trails, both rural and urban. The programming blends arts-based and artistic practices with more vernacular forms of creativity and poetic practice that emerge along pathways.
