Poperinge concludes the WW1 commemorations with a message of hope and consolation. Healing is the central theme during the summer of 2018. The exhibition Not in Khaki tells the story of  the comforting women, from nurse to prostitute. Contemporary artist Chantal Pollier provides layers of solace. In collaboration with the Art Festival Watou a poetic comfort route is worked out. It takes you to consoling places, decorated with healing art and poetry. The installation of the Dutch artist Anno Dijkstra will be the impressive eye-catcher in the town park.
