Partnership with Lire et Ecrire


Art and literacy

Since 2010, WIELS and the nonprofit organisation Lire et Ecrire Bruxelles Sud have offered weekly art workshops to an adult literacy group. Inspired by the exhibitions on view at WIELS, the workshops allow the participants to discover and experiment with a variety of artistic techniques (engraving, painting, drawing, animation, etc.) while also engaging in a reflection about the world of today. The goal of the workshop is to strengthen self-confidence, essential for the learning of reading and writing skills, through artistic practice.

These art workshops are coordinated by the artist Katherine Longly, who is accompanied by Patricia Fernandez for "Lire et Ecrire"
