Warm regards,

Flanders has a gorgeous 67 kilometres long coastline, which turns into a stunning decor for the contemporary arts every three years: Beaufort Triennial. All along the dikes, beaches and dunes, exciting works of art pop up, all inspired by the sea. From 27th of May to 7th of November. For the seventh edition of this Beaufort triennial, curator Heidi Ballet selected 21 contemporary (inter)national artists who will create a work of art along the entire Flemish coastline. The fact that man is subjected to nature’s will, is a central theme in this edition of the festival. The artworks are inspired by local stories collected from both natural and human history. The triennial Beaufort art happening started out in 2003 and aims to build a permanent Beaufort Sculpture Park, which already shows 30 works of art from the previous editions on a permanent basis. After this year's event, a few new sculptures will be added to that wealth. This unique artistic route can be explored easily by the coastal tram, that runs all along the Flemish coast. Beaufourt 21 is a free festival of contemporary arts, organized by the Province of West Flanders and Westtoer. Curator of the festival is Heidi Ballet.
