Birds of a Feather

Birds of a Feather is a publication that gives an insight into the organisation and functioning of OpStap, a group-based program for people with drug addictions and people in recovery. The focus lies on the guests of OpStap, who are given a meaningful use of time and meaning through meetings, activities and voluntary work.

The project started with several workshops, hosted by Vincen Beeckman & Lien Van Leemput. They interacted with the guests at OpStap, and Beeckman also joined them on their weekly activities outdoors. Conversations took place where questions were posed about the dreams and memories of the guests, but also about their everyday concerns and their opinion about OpStap.

Colin Pantall acts as a moderator and questions the goal of the project, the way in which people are portrayed, and the role of each person involved. This results in a series of interviews that will be a part of the publication.
