openoffice is a collaborative project between Ama Brussels, Caravan Production, Entropie Production, Hiros, workspacebrussels, ZOO/Thomas Hauert

Hiros is a production and management structure for independent artists working in various disciplines. Hiros offers tailor-made support for each artist and project, ranging from pre-production to production, administration, communication to financial management, tour management to post-production. Hiros wants to keep developing new forms of assistance and project management adapted to the needs of independent artists. They offer both project-based and long-term guidance. Distribution and visibility are crucial elements in their services.

Workspacebrussels is a laboratory for artistic innovation within the performing arts, with a great openness towards transdisciplinary projects. They accompany young and independent artists in their starting trajectory within the professional arts landscape. Via structural alliances with Kaaitheater, Rosas, Les Brigittines, Ultima Vez and CC Strombeek, workspacebrussels uses the existing infrastructure and expertise in Brussels. Workspacebrussels work with a rich and dynamic community of artists, who are invited to develop their practice through an intensive residency programme, coaching, production support and test presentations during our semi-annual festival.
