INTERNATIONAL MEETING IN PERFORMING ARTS AND CREATIVE TECHNOLOGIES

From November 7 to December 4, 2021, the fifth edition of the IMPACT Forum

The IMPACT Forum aims to encourage exchanges between the arts, sciences and technologies sectors. Over the years, the IMPACT Forum has consistently surprised us, by immersing us in the unimaginable possibilities that the future holds.
This fifth edition is bolstered by support from the Rayonnement Wallonie grant, an initiative from the Walloon government managed by ST’ART SA. It will take place in Liège and Hasselt, with shows and performances from France, Ireland, Spain, Mexico, the Netherlands and, of course, Belgium.
