Vrijstaat O. aims to use an interdisciplinary approach in its projects, intricately connecting multiple artistic disciplines (music /dance /performance /visual arts /literature /theatre). This artistic cross-over provides added value to our activities and is a deciding factor in the choice of artists we work with.

A nomadic character is essential to our project work. Vrijstaat O. swarms out into the public spaces of Ostend, a small town that takes up the space of a metropolis, and seeks out the perfect location for each new project. Working nomadically is a key principle and a unique advantage for our arts centre.

Our projects are broadly speaking creative assignments, at times in combination with a residency or trajectory.
