About Words Off The Page:

Words Off The Page started in 2016 and has since taken on various forms. The event came from the desire to create a space where writing took center stage and did not have to conform to the open mic poetry genre. The event allows for a variety of writing genres to be shared. Through the years the event has collaborated with various cultural events and artistic initiatives. Each event is defined by a keyword, lazy words, sour words and this time THIRSTY words. The words function as the visual identity of the event and spark inspiration for writings.

What remains at the core of the event is people gathering to share writing, words, getting them off the page and into an audible communal space. A communal space not tied to a physical location but to the feeling of kinship the event has formed. Curatorially, the event attempts to re-imagine the space where writing belongs and redefine the practice of writing as something multifaceted and dynamic, shifting the boundaries of what we choose to share and keep private. Writing as a process, a medium and a final outcome.

 

About Trixie:

Trixie is an artist-run space located in the Stationsbuurt, neighbouring the red light district of The Hague. Founded in 2018 and led by a diverse group of young artists, Trixie is an initiative that encourages artistic production through collaboration, experimentation and exchange.

With our diverse backgrounds we run a space which consists of 15 studio spaces – currently hosting 16 artists, a gallery and a workshop. Trixie runs a public programme, inviting diverse groups of artists to experiment with alternative presentation strategies and expand their practice, network and audience with the use of our space and resources.

Through Trixie, we aim for a sustainable working structure and public programme, which is a valuable asset for its members, their professional development as well as the cultural landscape of The Hague and beyond.
