Ingrid Vranken completed Theatre Studies at the University of Antwerp and Freie Universität Berlin. She worked as a dramaturg, producer and curator for artists and arts organisations including Bâtard Festival, Walter Verdin and David Weber-Krebs. In 2012 she became the coordinator of artist platform SPIN, where she worked for five years. She is a (board) member of several artistic organisations and platforms, including oKo, Bâtard festival, Nada&Co and FoAM. Aside from her work in the arts, Ingrid is actively engaged in the climate movement. She is a coordination team member of the activist organisation Climate Express. Ingrid's work focuses on connecting the arts and ecology, not only as a theme of artistic work, but also as a way to transform artistic processes and practices. She is currently researching new organisational and collaborative models, and a wider ecological and post-capitalist transition.
