VERSUS ART

BEAF / BOZAR

Web

Since 14 September, BOZAR has a new department dedicated to art, new media and technology, its name: BOZAR LAB. This new space is a place where artists, researchers and the general public can meet and share critical reflections at the intersection between different disciplines. In keeping with its constant desire to revitalise the synergies between the economic, social and artistic domains, the Centre for Fine Arts pursues its mission of anticipation, which it has been faithful to since its creation, through the innovation driven by the sectors on the cutting edge of modernity. The LAB was inaugurated within the context of the BOZAR Electronic Arts Festival.

Fondation Liedts-Meesen

Web

The Liedts-Meesen Foundation was founded in 1999. It organizes socio-cultural events, has its own art collection, and develops projects at different venues.  In 2005, the foundation started the Zebrastraat project: a building by Charles Van Rysselberghe offering social housing to workers in the early 20th century, and today a place where living, economy and culture meet. Ten years later, the site was expanded with New Zebra.

The entire site counts more than 100 studios and apartments with flexible renting formulas. In addition, Zebrastraat organizes the most diverse events for the business and the academic world, from training and meetings to exclusive product presentations. Art and culture are intertwined in everything.

Each Thursday evening, Zebrastraat offers a platform for literature, social debate, film and theater. There is an extensive program of exhibitions in the exhibition hall and the lounge.

NTAA

During the last few years, Zebrastraat Ghent has developed into a stimulating knowledge centre with a strong interest in contemporary art. Every two years, update / New Technological Art Award (NTAA) tries to fill a gap in the mainstream art world by paying attention to the technological developments which impel our global culture.

NTAA selects and presents creations in which culture-forming technology plays a central role. Whether low or high tech, or intuitive or experimental, these creations always make us attentive to the innovative trends of our times. The exhibition of achievements of the selected winners is a compass that orients you to the relevant and innovative use of technology in the artistic sector.

VERSUS START-UP

Le B19

Web

B19 is a modern business club giving you access to conferences every week, as well as breakfast and afterwork events and meetings hosted by one of our ‘in-house’ journalists such as Bruno Wattenbergh, Jean Blavier, Christophe Giltay and Caroline Fontenoy.

The invited speakers are eminent figures from the worlds of economics, finance, sports, politics, medicine and the arts.

One of the main aims of these meetings is to bring together people who are the driving forces behind the Belgian national economy, and give them access to speakers in high positions. The chance to interact in pairs, and be inspired by other people’s businesses gives our members another perspective on how to run their own businesses.

B19, the number one national business club, is offering membership for 365 days, giving you entry to over 100 conferences in 2018, within the six B19 branches – Brussels, Liege, Antwerp, Walloon Brabant, Mons and Ghent.

B19 is the business club with the highest quota of female members at present, with 25% of current members being women. The director of B19 is a woman, and as such one of her main priorities is to increase the number of women who are active within B19.
