In 2013 WARP organised an Artist Village at C-mine in Genk, Belgium.
During this week WARP provides emerging artists with feedback and stimulating input through personal interviews with professionals. The starting point for such conversations is the artist’s portfolio. In addition to meeting national and foreign curators, critics, experienced artists, choreographers, psychoanalysts and the like, meetings between artists are at least as important for an artist’s professional development.
