Summer residencies for artists in the community centres

Summer residencies for artists in the community centres

As in previous years, this summer many community centres go outside into the neighbourhoods, to the Brusselers. This means that various locations are not being fully used and the centres are happy to offer their space to artists. To this end, the 22 Brussels community centres “N22” launched an open call and once again artists are in great need of studio space. This summer, 70 artists can find a place in one of the community centres. In total, 42 spaces can be used for a period of 10 weeks.

“Many of our artists are looking for a suitable studio space. Therefore we make the patrimony of the Flemish Community Commission “VGC” available, as much as possible. We literally and figuratively give space to our artists by opening the doors of our community centres this summer. That way we ensure that Brussels remains one of the artistic hotspots in the world. Our arts sector gives our city a face. If we want Brussels to be the cultural capital in 2030, we have to continue to support them and give them opportunities,” says Pascal Smet.

The artists will be able to use a workspace to develop their artistic project or research. There is a great diversity among the artists: circus, dance, theatre, performance, visual artists, musicians, multimedia,... Also, starters and artists with a clear link to Brussels are supported.
