The program of the twentieth edition of this creative working week is online: eleven ateliers, three artists in residence and an exhibition.
For seven days you will be guided by professional coaches and you will find inspiration in yourself, the other, the environment.
For everyone aged 18 and over with creative energy. And certainly: for those who do not want to be held by their hand, but are looking for challenges to rejoice in their own practice.
What would the city look like if you could come up with it out of nowhere?
To answer this question, De Veerman developed Architelier. A tool to think together with different people, between the ages of 6 and 106, about urban development and in doing so to think about our ideal society. It is an exercise in spatial planning as a steppingstone for social debate.
Interested in programming Architelier?
Uit de schaduw (meaning out of the shadow) is a publication with an evolutionary sketch of 80 years of art and cultural education in Flanders, written and compiled by Jan Staes and our own Tijl Bossuyt.
With this publication, which was created in collaboration with publiq, the inspirers and editors want to offer inspiration and building blocks for the future from the past.
Yes, you read it correctly: 4,842 stories have been written in 36 schools.
Currently 420 parents are reading these stories. Per school they make a selection of their stories. They read individually, and then come together at school between 10 and 21 March to discuss their choices. These are always very pleasant moments of shared emotion, amazement and humour.
The closing party of this wonderful project is on Friday 29 May at 1.45 pm in Freinetschol De Zonnebloem (Ostend) and Saturday 13 June at 2 pm in hetpaleis (Antwerp).
You are officially invited!
In the MAS-museum, on the 4 April: A Reunion of Objects. A pop-up exhibition by United Objects, the result of the residency of Hans Bossmann at De Veerman.
On Sunday 29 March, Yvo Verschoor will perform various compositions on the pianola in AMUZ, an invention from 1905 that captures the pianist's playing, eliminating the restriction of ten or twenty fingers. The children of the sixth year of Musica will also discover this and much more.
