Any Way the Wind Blows for groups

Be blown away (pun intended) this summer by the arts festival "Any Way The Wind Blows," where art, air and wind come together. What can you expect? Well, a lot. From bouncy castles designed by well-known, international artists to a machine that mimics wind currents. From giant, inflatable sculptures to an endless pogo on the roof. You can throw kites or make your own, and for inspiration, 30 artists are already designing a brand new kite themselves.

The festival showcases the work of both national and international standouts: Cyril Lancelin (FR), Kamiel de Waal (BE), 019 (BE), Haseeb Ahmed (USA), Loulou João (BE/DRC), Dennis Tyfus (BE), Sharon Van Overmeiren (BE), Shirley Villavicencio Pizango (BE/PE), Winnie Claessens (BE), Plastique Fantastique (IT/KR), The RedBall project (USA), Zoro Feigl (BE), Karina Beumer (NL), Ada Güvenir (BE/TR) and Lotte Vrancken (BE).
