In 2003 we wrote the first version of our present allocation policy with the aim of allocating studios objectively and transparently. This policy was updated in 2015.
We must say straight away that the allocation of a workspace is always specific to each applicant. In addition, an allocation policy is never finished. It evolves with the organisation and available studio spaces.
We have appointed an independent advisory panel of experts from the visual arts sector who assess the individual dossiers and ultimately allocate the workspaces.
This panel comprises a minimum of 3 members, at least one of whom is an artist and at least one at work in higher art education or employed by a museum or gallery.
The current members of the panel are Liene Aerts (KASK), Isolde Vanhee (LUCA Arts) and Robin Vermeersch (artist who works at LUCA Arts).
