With the necessary distance and hygiene rules of course, but the most important thing is that in the week of July 20, Destelheide will be buzzing with creativity again. Unfortunately we cannot invite outsiders to our presentation moments this year, but you can always follow us on Facebook.
FUTURUM: a new participation project with deSingel, in collaboration with the VAi (The Flanders Architecture Institute) and art academies. The occasion is the homage to Luc Deleu and the T.O.P. office in the spring of 2021.
FUTURUM offers young people the opportunity to reflect on tomorrow's world and to mould it into a visual language that will be exhibited at deSingel.
The publication on La Plaza-a triptych, our participation project with deSingel that was completed during the lockdown, can be viewed here. It is the result of an intense and experimental creation process by seven participants, triggered by the mental journey of the El Conde de Torrefiel company, the others and themselves.

For the first time, The Wonderful Pen landed by the sea in the Freinetschool de Zonnebloem. It was an instant hit. So make sure to check out the 32 stories read and the 4 songs, based on the stories.
The past few weeks we were able to enlist seven musicians in the emergency care in schools in the city of Antwerp. It was quite an organization, because it always happened in different places and with last minute announcements, but with glittering eyes as a result: of our musicians and of the children.
As an addition to the youth workers we gave musical workshops in Deurne (31 children in 3 bubbles), Ekeren (22 children in 2 bubbles), Antwerp (14 children in 2 bubbles), Hoboken (5 children in 1 bubble) and Wilrijk (24 children in 2 bubbles). Each time with a delicious mini-concert at the end.
