This year, we will tackle an intermediate stage named Anthesis.
Anthesis is the period during which a flower is fully open and functional. The term can also refer to the beginning of this period.
Flower/plant anthesis is sequential within an inflorescence so that when the style and perianth are different colours, a striking colour change gradually sweeps through the inflorescence.
Daytime anthesis flowers are usually brightly coloured to attract daytime insects, such as butterflies. Nocturnal anthesis flowers are typically white or less colourful and, as such, contrast more strongly with the night. These flowers usually attract nocturnal insects, including many species of moths.

We will take into account several criteria upon the selection of projects:
- the relevance to the theme,
- the immersive aspect of the proposal,
- a sustainable approach, respect for the environment and upcycling.
We are therefore looking for projects that are particularly relevant to the following disciplines:
We’re not looking for scenographic projects as our team is already working on this. But if you want to get involved, please contact:
Closely collaborating with our host, La Station de la Haute Ardenne (the ski domain) and the municipality, we now have the opportunity to develop long-term projects on site. Therefore, we would like to grab/seize this opportunity to bring an impactful artistic imprint to our rural and remote countryside.
That means that we have the possibility to allow some artworks to cohabit on the festival site for a longer period of time (from 3 months to several years).
We will then create an art trail around and within the perimeter of the festival that will display your artworks/installations and allow walkers to discover them in the heart of nature.
The only constraint for this kind of commitment is that we will only consider the artworks that do not require any electricity or a regular maintenance. You should also make sure that the artworks can live well with the rather harsh Belgian weather conditions.
