Vooruit colaborates regularly with BUDA Kunstencentrum in DÉPARTS projects.
BUDA is a workspace for artists, a festival organizer, and an art cinema. BUDA welcomes about 150 artists on a yearly basis. They come to live and work temporarily in Kortrijk. They have at their disposal studios in the Budatower, two equipped theater halls, a team of technicians, and a boarding house to stay overnight. Artists in residence present their work to an audience during festivals throughout the season: Fresh (spring), Kortrijk Congé (mid July) and NEXT (autumn).
