Plan Atelier: artists share space

  “A nice and warm studio, with a decent rental agreement, offers stability and peace. It provides some breathing space for creative work”, according to Katrien Reist, coordinator of iMAL (interactive Media Art Laboratory).

By sharing a studio space, you get cross-fertilization, artists respond to each other’s work and take care of each other.

A good and affordable studio is a serious problem for artists, especially for young starters. The VGC therefore works with the ‘Plan Atelier’ (Studio Plan) to develop a studio policy in Brussels and create specific studio spaces. Sharing space has advantages! Peter and Youri from the Tristero company manage the studio space in Gallait 80: By sharing a studio, artists open up new areas. Other disciplines challenge them in their work.”
