In these difficult times for the arts, supporting Belgian and international artists in making new projects possible
is still our primary mission. Every edition, thanks to the Friends Fund, the festival offers an extra support to some of these projects. If today, more than ever, you share with us the importance and desire to support them, you can join forces with us and become a Friend of the Festival. Due to the corona crisis, the Belgian federal government decided to upgrade the tax deductibility to 60% (instead of 45%) for all gifts done in 2020. Thus, your gift of €40 will cost only €16.

€50 and more

  • The Friends Night in March 2021: introduction to the festival programme and opening of the Box-office
  • A meeting with the supported artist after one of her/his performances during the festival
  • Mention of Your name in the brochure 2021, on the website and in the festival centre (unless you don’t want to).

  • In May 2021: Invitations to discover the festival behind the scenes: general rehearsals, meeting with the artists, guided tours etc.

€ 1000 and more

  • A meeting with the supported artist and with the direction during the year
  • The possibility to participate in a prospection-journey with the artistic directors (subject to travel opportunities and security measures put in place for the pandemic)
  • All the preceding items for the Friends and Best Friends

All donations of at least €40 per year are tax deductible. Due to the SARS-CoV-2 crisis, the Belgian federal government decided to upgrade the tax deductibility to 60% (instead of 45%) for all gifts done in 2020. Thus, your gift of €40 will cost only €16.

The King Baudouin Foundation sends you the fiscal receipt at the beginning of the following year.

Monthly donations are also possible.
