    The theme for the Open Church Days 2024 "With a nod to the impossible" certainly applies to Kessenich's St Martin's Church. In 1896, everyone thought it impossible that a new village church could be built in Kessenich, a small village in the outskirts of Belgium with barely 800 inhabitants. But what seemed impossible could nevertheless be realised. Mainly thanks to the titanic work of parish priest Michael Geusens and the generous donations of Willem Hendrik Baron Michiels van Kessenich, a...

His chiaroscuro universe invites us to search for answers, to delve deep into what makes up our human condition. In counterpoint, a dialogue between daughter and father offers...

The crazier, the better? Children can do a children's treasure hunt in the church to discover the works of art in the...

    For Severine, everything started with depression-inducing stress in her childhood. Gradually, she climbed out of the valley. She learned to handle herself skilfully. Supported by family, she was later able to live alone and independently.

    As a child, Severien loved to draw. Actually, she wanted to go to art school but everyone advised her against it. Yet the creative microbe never went away. Hence, she joined the art studio 'Ardéfoo'. Art has always helped her, she could indulge in it....
