Engagement Gent:
Open Meeting

Open Meeting Gent (In Real Life)

Thursday 17 March 2022, 19.30 - 21.30
Oud Huis, Kunsthal Gent, Lange Steenstraat 14, 9000 Gent


To join the meeting, please sign up by sending an email to contact@engagementarts.be. To ensure a space of trust, we ask you to arrive on time. Thank you for your understanding. We want to be careful and make sure everyone feels safe. Therefore we will limit the number of people (maximum 15 participants) and we kindly ask you not to join if you have any covid-symptoms.

What are Engagement Open Meetings?

ENGAGEMENT organizes monthly open meetings in Brussels, Ghent and soon also some in Antwerp. These meetings are built around the idea of peer-to-peer support and solidarity, and are visited by artists, cultural workers and art students who want to gather around the topics of sexism, sexual harassment and abuse of power in the arts.

Together, we try, every time again, to create a space for sharing and listening. Together we build this space. It is also a way to get to know the work of ENGAGEMENT. Some people decide, after having been present at some of those meetings, to engage more actively in the work, which we welcome. ENGAGEMENT is not a fixed group of employees, it exists out of people that engage with the topics we want to tackle.

It is not a problem at all if you have never been part of an open meeting like this before. People come and go, the space is open and we are always happy to welcome new faces. If you have specific needs in regards to the accessibility of the space, please let us know. We are happy to do what we can to make the space accessible to everyone.

If you want to know a bit more on what ENGAGEMENT stands for, you can read the statement on our website or send us an e-mail.
