About the tailor-made programmes for individuals
Every year, curators and programme directors from abroad are invited by Flanders Arts Institute to visit the contemporary visual and performing art scene in Flanders and Brussels, Belgium.
They are offered a tailor-made programme in which they meet artists and other art professionals. Included are visits to artists, museums, arts centres and galleries. The programme is prepared in close consultation with the curators and takes account of their wishes.
In addition they are put in touch with artists and organisations that are not so well known at international level. This way, Flanders Arts Institute tries to increase the knowledge about the Flemish contemporary art scene and enhance its position abroad. Each visit generally lasts three to four days, unless there are reasons that require a longer stay.
This programme is intended for art professionals in the visual, audiovisual and/or media art sector, including curators, critics or researchers. The goal is to maintain a balance between young upcoming, freelance and established art professionals associated with major art institutions, biennials, festivals, universities and magazines.
