Dorothée Wycart

Cultural Outreach Coordinator

Dorothée Wycart is responsible for mediation projects and specifically responsible for developing educational toolkit projects on cultural and artistic themes.

In additional to being an education project manager, Dorothée Wycart is also a visual artist working in the Fédération Wallonie-Bruxelles. She studied art at the Saint-Luc Institute in Tournai and at the Dunkirk – Tourcoing College of Art (ESA Dunkirk-Tourcoing). For 10 years, she worked as a guide and art teacher at the Lille Palais des Beaux-Arts, and as a digital learning advisor in association with schools in the Hauts-de-France region.

Her specific expertise in project management along with her specialisation in socio-cultural engagement within the museum, cultural, and events sectors has naturally led her to examine the knowledge and skillsets which are essential to educational programmes, partnerships, and tools. In her recent projects, she has been able to gain insight into regional approaches within the culture sector in Brussels and beyond. Following fruitful collaborations with the Central-Centre Culturel du Centre and the Fédération Wallonie-Bruxelles General Service for Artistic Creation, she has recently joined the Transcultures team. Her role there is to coordinate an educational package scheme centred around contemporary art (in the context of PECA – the Cultural and Artistic Educational Pathway) and, more broadly, to work on innovative initiatives for increasing engagement and awareness regarding diverse modern cultural, artistic, and aesthetic practices.

Furthermore, in her own artistic work, she investigates the relationship between humans and nature, and her recent creations explore a renewal of the relationship between memory, magic, and intimacy. Her creative process of de- and re-construction produces digital scenes where time stops, and the spectator is plunged into a state of uncertainty around reality itself.
