Arts professionals to flee: what can we do together?

Artists and artisans leave their countries because of war, natural disasters, or political, social or economic circumstances. Apart from governments and NGOs taking care of shelter, trauma, legal and financial concerns, the arts and cultural sector can also offer support for refugee artists and professionals. We can offer work space, meeting space, apprenticeships, jobs, access to networks and opportunities for development, production and presentation. Beyond these needs, there are opportunities to bring their skills, knowledge of their local cultural scene and practices to the cultural field in Flanders.
