I want to be able to touch feelings, characteristics and climb through memories.I’m curious to find ways to trigger the interplay between our inside and our outside world, and how to fit one into the other. I invite their textile covered forms into human spaces for others to experience and explore on their own terms.

With the artwork “Net-work”, Roeland depicts the underlying connection between all entities on Earth in the shape of a large net. The net is crafted from grass collected in the Mastbos in Breda. Through this poetic process, Roeland beautifully combines human action and nature into a single artwork. Humanity and nature are inseparably connected. We are nature, and nature is us. By caring for nature, you ultimately care for yourself.

Ster Borgman sees themselves as a magical scientist and have been researching rust in glass. Rust is something hybrid, something that grows and even overgrows. When you look at glass, it pretends not to move, but when you look away it starts dripping and flowing everywhere: it's slow, but unstoppable. Rust tells a story about deep time; how it bursts out of the earth in the form of iron and then slowly oxidizes through the rain. Learn and see more at the festival! 
Lars is a 19-year-old singer-songwriter who started making music at the age of 8. After several years as a percussionist, he taught himself to play the guitar and piano at the age of 16. To add some color to his musical skills, Lars also started singing and writing his own lyrics. He will not only perform solo but also with his new live band "Het Volume". Together with his live band he delights the audience with energetic yet sensitive Dutch-language songs.
In this space there is connectivity. In this space we can leave our work behind. Our home is of no importance here. This is the space where everything is a possibility. We use our imagination to shape this space. The shape of this space is fluid. We meet each other, we meet the space. What does this space ask of us? What do we need to be in this space? Help us build a Third Space.

Remote Controls is a young band from Breda. At the moment they are still playing covers of for example Foo Fighters and Arctic Monkeys, but they are already working on something new which they would like to show to the world. 
In the heart of Breda, a new sound has emerged, echoing the soulful melodies of the American South. Mount Mono is redefining the Southern Rock genre for a new generation.

Kim's Garage performs their own work and covers. The own songs mix jazz with funk and rock and the saxophone, interesting guitar and bass lines and the two vocals keep it fresh.

These masks distort the space into a dystopian place. Through the alienation they bring, I hope to pull people out of normality for a brief moment. Normality is determined by the frequency of occurrence and how well we perceive it. Is it still possible to break that norm? Are there still unknown, abnormal territories, or have we seen everything and are we no longer surprised by anything? 

Before the invasion, Jenya and Anne created illustrated projects, zines, and screenprints. In 2015, they co-founded PRINT FEST, the first festival for printmaking in Kiev. Additionally, the duo illustrated various books and engaged in many multidisciplinary projects that blended illustration with other disciplines. Apart from their joint projects, they also work individually as illustrators, each with their own themes and methods.

Self-reflection can be a radical activity for anyone. It requires asking real questions and maintaining an open mind. Self-reflection means looking at yourself outside of your personal frame of reference. This means facing up to past choices and their consequences, and maintaining the urge to keep growing. During a two-month artist residency, Julia van Ravenstein researched a way to use space to influence introspection and shed light on vital internal processes that often go unnoticed, even by the ones experiencing them.
