Explore the city and its many life forms, populated with stories, legends and secrets. 

During this workshop, a group of adventurers explores the extraordinary territories of amazing creatures. This cheerful team discovers the mysteries of Wiels Swamp and its history by following the traces of the magical animals and plants that protect their biotope there.   

Using stencils, monotypes and drawings, I set off on an exploration of the biodiversity that is present in the city.

Mathilde is a young artist who is pretty much on her way to obtaining her diploma and aggregate at the ERG (école de recherche graphique).  Her practice consists of making "sculptural paintings", using mainly chiselled elements. She is particularly interested in our relationship to life and landscape. In her works, through fragile assemblages, a layering of subtle signs appears, mixing the organic with the artificial and forming a gateway to imaginary worlds not necessarily at odds with the real. 

Elias Sanhaji studied at the Ecole de Recherche Graphique in Brussels, where he is currently completing his Masters. Since childhood, he has been fascinated by huts and camps as well as large-scale urban construction projects. In recent years, through his artistic practice, he has been trying to draw attention to current ecological issues and to help us rebuild a sensitive relationship with what lives around us, with a world that sometimes seems far away from us when we live in the city. 

9 May is a public holiday - 4 days of workshop
