    We welcome you all this summer at BabelBühne!

    We’re ready to welcome you all for a nice Summer in the cosy oasis of BabelBühne. Tales for children, music for the young and the not so young, open-air films, young local talent, world cuisine, and poetry in the afternoon... All of this is covered during BabelFestival, a free summer programmation in the North of Antwerp with multilingualism and diversity as unifying elements.

    BabelBar opens one hour in advance. (no bar during BabelFabel)

    Wednesdays for children from 4 to 8 y, organised together with Bib Permeke. Storytellers take the children on a multilingual journey and let them wander in exciting tales. Afterwards they can recreate their multicultural experiences during creative handicrafts.

    >> On Wednesdays from 14 till 16h - reservations



    BabelJam offers a free podium for poetry, hosted by Maud Vanhauwaert: five poets create a cascade of words within the Bühne in complete freedom and multilingualism, with musical accompaniment of Arumbo, Nataniel Melo and Hussein Rassim.

    >> On Wednesdays and Saturdays from 13 till 17h

  2. GolfGever




    Birder & GolfGever -> Verbeke Foundation

    From sunday 2 May until 31 October 2021 Birder and GolfGever move to the Verbeke Foundation, especially for the exposition Natura Naturata.

    Birder is a high-tech device for breeding birds and a futuristic sound box. Each species of bird propagates a vision for the future. Together they play the music of the future.

    This installation got the most conveniant spot: next to the bird cages.

    A little further you can chill on GolfGeveran enormous wave on which you can sit or lie down. Nestle in its curves, allow yourself to float and get in touch with yourself and others.
