The Writer's Bench is an Antwerp-based arts organisation. Since 2009 they have been developing and curating original concept events that are held in various cities throughout Belgium. These concepts include But is it Jazz? and Co-Hoots. Their most recent concept is entitled Wish List – the art of social conscience. This event brings together an impressive international line-up of guests from various creative backgrounds. Each guest hosts an evening of talk, film and performance to reveal what motivates them to link their creative output to broader social issues. The series of events is hosted and moderated by Dalilla Hermans, herself a notable figure in the struggle for social justice.
