Wilde Westen: Curating Lab 2024

Wilde Westen (BE)

Wilde Westen organises an annual Curating Lab in January, where young creators and curators engage with speakers and programmers around the theme of diversity and inclusion within music programming.

Over 2 days, in panel discussions, workshops and lectures, the topics of inclusion and diversity in the music sector were explored from the perspective of people actively working on it every day in their own artistic practice. Difficult subjects were not avoided and the participants were invited to step far outside their artistic comfort zone!
