Vlaams Cultuurhuis de Brakke Grond - Oorzaken Festival
Oorzaken Festival presents an ode to audio stories and stimulates adventurous listeners with fascinating, beautiful, moving tales from around the world. We seek out the boundaries of creating radio and provide a stage to today’s most innovative makers. The theme is surveillance.
There is a global surge of podcasts and indie radio. The best stories and many new works will be played during a jam-packed festival programme at de Brakke Grond. These can be listened collectively in the theatre, but also cruising down the canals or whilst walking through the city.
With masterclasses by luminaries including Benjamen Walker, Willem de Ridder and Eleanor McDowall, a Listen in the Dark [Luister in het Duister] with Paulien Cornelisse’s selection, a Sleep Well Night [Slaap Zacht Nacht] with Kaitlin Prest, a Podcast Party and the Short Wave [Korte Golf] contest.
