To submit your application, please send us a presentation of you/your collective, a description of what you would like to propose during the open stage, and a video showing your work to projets@leshivernales.be 

Application deadline: 12 February 2024 at the latest

The Hivernales artistic direction will then select the collectives and individuals who will be invited to take part in the Open Stage, and will establish a schedule for their participation.
