The festival will take place on the land of a cozy farm in the greenery near Ronse, with camping, tasty and healthy food, sauna, fire and safe atmosphere in a safe and alcohol-free and drug-free environment.

Women?

VrouwenFest is a festival for all people who identify themselves as women or who were socialized as women at birth. We welcome all women regardless of age, clothing size, ethnic origin, religion or sexual preference.​

Mother Festival WomanFest

VrouwenFest is inspired by WomanFest, the first radical women's participation festival in the United Kingdom that took place for the first time in August 2018.
 
We are in close contact with the organizers and adopted their basic principles to help shape our own Belgian version.

Program

One of the basic principles of VrouwenFest is Radical Participation. That's why we are not able yet to publish a complete program: what's on the program will also depend on you.



Radical participation
 
Definition: Real change, both individually and socially, can only come from a deep personal commitment.
 
We invite every woman to come and be a unique part of the whole. Each of us has a talent to share. VrouwenFest invites every woman to put her talent in the group. This is how true communities are formed and enriched.
 
We ensure that everything can be shared in a safe atmosphere.
 
We have no criteria as to what this talent should be, we only know that the festival will be enriched by yours.
 
Are you creative?, Are you a maker of beautiful things? Do you sing? Dance? Feed?, are you dancing, are you feeding , do you have an infectious activist spirit?Are you a healer?, A beacon of peace?, Do you have knowledge about something that you want to convey? Please let us know and help build the festival programme!
 
Bring your own talent, share your knowledge, make music, draw, show your activist spirit, spread your oddities, ...

Tents
 
• Heart Tent
A healthy (vegan) meal will be served three times a day in ‘the heart’. You can also just chill out here with a cup of tea and browse our women's library. The stage is there for your performances (music, poetry, readings, ...).
 
• Movement Tent
Here we celebrate our physical appearance with Yoga, dance, 5 Rhythms and more. (Re)discover your body, learn something new, let it teach you new things or just let it be.
 
•Conversation Tent
Here we learn about ourselves and the world in which we move, via lectures, reflection, information, insights and more. Knowledge and wisdom are shared by women who have delved deeper into certain topics and want to share them with us.
 
• Rituals Tent
Here we give a place to our minds: story telling, ceremonial songs, rituals, women's circles, ...
 
• Creativity Tent
Here you can enjoy yourself creatively: from traditional crafts to experimental painting techniques, from writing workshops to sharing bushcraft knowledge, from macramé to vagina stamps. The program is determined by which creative talents you bring.

• Red Tent
Here we create a safe place without a schedule. In the red tent you can escape the workshops and lively bustle of the heart of the festival, to relax, catch up without obligations, share stories, rest, be quiet, or be cared for. The red tent is hosted by a wise guardian who guards the safety of this place.
 
• Silent Space
There is also no program or timetable at the quiet location. If you need complete silence, to come to yourself without input and sounds, you can do that here.
