On 24 May 2022 VONK and MORPHO are organizing a public talk for artists and international curators. Join the conversation and learn about international support and opportunities for artists.

We start at VONK for a tour at our studios and a reception with snacks. Afterwards we visit Z33 where all artists can dive into the knowledge and network of the international curators in smaller groups. In these groups we discuss items such as: what kind of support is present for artists in your country? How to approach a contact or network in your country? What kind of residency spaces or artist run spaces are available? Which organizations show emerging international artists?

Bring a set of questions you want ask the curators and join the talk to start building a sustainable environment for your practice.

The UFO Visitors Programme is organised by UFO, a platform for artist studio organisations in Flanders, supported by Flanders Art Institute. The programme aims to connect different players in the field and introduces international professionals to (young) artists in Flanders and Brussels. The purpose is to exchange knowledge and experience, and to nourish an international network of references and opportunities.

During each visitor’s programme we focus on two different UFO organisations. These organisations propose a dynamic programme with artist meetings, visits of exhibitions and networking moments for a group of international curators and local artists.

The second edition of the UFO visitors programme is initiated by VONK and MORPHO together with Z33 and Extra City, supported by Flanders Art Institute.
