Following the success of our 6-year exploration of national styles (2006-2011), we now turn to exploring how water has connected cultures. We will visit cities whose position on great seas or rivers has connected them to the wider world and allowed them to be dominant centres of the arts for centuries. From Venice the journey continues through Paris, Bruges, Vienna and Rome finally ending in London.
The theme of 2021 is Enchanting Bruges. The festival will be held from 16th until 23rd July 2021.
In 2020 the festival won’t be organized due to the current Coronavirus crisis.
