To home | Grand opening !

Grand opening !

Dear friends of the “Tipi’s Mechelen” project,

Perhaps you were no longer expecting this invitation. After all, our Tipi has been open to visitors for over a year now. Many visitors have admired our piece of art in the provincial Vrijbroekpark, and have ventured inside to indulge in a series of poems in different languages.

All of this is wonderful, yet the promise that we made ourselves two years ago still stands: an official opening, one with great fanfare!

This was unfortunately not possible during the past months, but today nothing is holding us back – it’s party time!

We would therefore like to invite you to the opening of “Tipi’s Mechelen”, Sunday 24 October, from 2 pm onwards.

There will be music and poetry, snacks and drinks – and even “letter soup”. All of which surrounded by the magnificent autumn colour palette of the Vrijbroekpark. Do not miss it!


– poetry, songs and music by Boule Mpanya & Didier Ntizatureka, Dichtatuur, Sally Ghannoum
– launch of the next Tipi’s Mechelen Poetry Harvest
