Symposium and work session: collaboration in the visual arts in Ghent

Pay what you can

CLUB SOLO + KHG present:
Learning to share

Learning to share - a work session on other ways of working together

Club Solo Symposium on Tour 2021-2022
Edition Kunsthal Gent
Tuesday 14 December, 14.00 - 17.00

On Tuesday, December 14 Kunsthal Gent organises the symposium Learning to share: a work session with artists and organisations around collaboration in the Ghent visual arts field.

Kunsthal Gent invites, amongst others, KIOSK, S.M.A.K., artists and collectives to explore a specific question from its user's guide:

'How can we make sure that knowledge and resources are more readily shared? What can the different institutions, art organisations and artists contribute towards a stronger ecology for the arts in Ghent? Can we see ourselves as a team of complementary players?'


In this work session, we share information about several larger platforms in Ghent that share spaces, and hear about the experiences of artists and organisations that make use of them. In several work tables, we will engage in an 'unlearning exercise' and try to formulate what the ideal situation might look like.

The work tables are based on the format of 'unlearning exercises': exercises to 'unlearn' undesirable habits and customs within the work environment. The source of inspiration is the book Unlearning Exercises, published by Valiz and Casco Art Institute: Working for the Commons, Utrecht. (This is where the previous edition of Club Solo's Symposium On Tour took place.)


Mail to danielle@kunsthal.gent if you would you like to participate and contribute to this work session. There is a fee available for up to 15 non-employee participants.
