Save the date - Landscape Sketch of the Arts: session Involvement

Give your opinion and contribute to the Landscape Sketch of the Arts!

The Landscape Sketch of the Arts is a comprehensive analysis of Flanders' professional arts landscape that Flanders Arts Institute puts together at the start of each new political term. To make sure nothing is overlooked, we organise several sessions throughout 2024 to gather input from the sector, each time focusing on a different part of the arts field.

Session Involvement

Arts participation is defined as involvement in artistic and creative activities. The arts field has evolved over the last decade from a field with a (small) number of historical core players to a dynamic collection of organisations and artists who approach participation in various ways. Traditional thinking in target groups has been supplemented by intuitive, local and relational practices.

"Arts participation projects" require slow and intensive processes whose artistic outcome can be very unpredictable. These projects have enormous potential where their effects reach far beyond the arts sector. They work closely with the health care industry, education, youth and other industries.

How do artists and organisations view their role and position in the arts sector today? How do we deal with the social challenges of our time? Have we returned to business as usual after two turbulent years dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic? Can we observe profound changes in the development of these arts practices?

Join us in November to discuss the current state of participation in the arts. What are the underlying challenges and what are the opportunities? Share your insights and experiences.

When and where

November 19 at 10 am, at De Vieze Gasten in Ghent.

Remuneration, barriers and confidentiality

Flanders Arts Institute wants creators' voices to be heard more. For freelance artists (who are not on the payroll of an arts organisation and for whom participation is therefore unpaid) Flanders Arts Institute provides a volunteer fee. You can indicate this in the practical confirmation email.

Furthermore, we want to help address any barriers for participants, e.g. through hybrid participation for people who have difficulty getting physically on site, food preferences or childcare. Please let us know how we can accommodate you via that same confirmation email.

To enable a safe conversation, Flanders Arts Institute commits to keeping identifiable statements within the conversation and to anonymously incorporate these insights into the final report.
