En ArchipelASBL

art cooperative


En Archipel is a non-profit organisation based in Brussels. Its aim is to set up new modes of
to set up new modes of research, creation, production, promotion and distribution of artistic expression. Its objective is both the creation of shows and the sensitisation of audiences to different artistic expressions.
Its aim is to disseminate contemporary dance in the most varied spaces (theatre, museum, public space, homes, rural and urban spaces, etc.) and to promote choreography, in the broadest sense, applied to the other arts. En Archipel is recognised by the Wallonia-Brussels Federation.
It pursues the realisation of these goals by setting up an artistic cooperative. This
cooperative is established thanks to the artist members, in collaboration with its board of directors and the members, in particular: by creating spectacular or participative events; by giving workshops to a specific public; by creating laboratory time-spaces on the remodelling of our artistic professions towards forms of cooperation; by proposing training courses and workshops; by associating with partners from other sectors (artistic or not); by producing educational or promotional video content; by publishing paper and digital editions.
The artists supported propose a practice and a research in the realization of an artistic object. They are anchored in the Belgian and international artistic landscape.
This support for emerging artists is the foundation of the association and responds to the need to build a structure that accompanies singular approaches as an alternative to institutional creation venues.
