During a residency in the small Flemish village of Bekegem, OUTLINE collected impressions, anecdotes, stories and dialogues together with the residents they met during their stay. During the festival weekend of Kunstenfestival Plan B 2018 they broadcasted radio, live from a bus stop on the town square. The frequency was only available within village borders, this way creating something personal and ephemeral - specially for the residents of Bekegem.
