Joining forces: building resilient nightlife communities
In close partnership with KU Leuven & Nachtplan, December 11-12-13 2020
Belgium’s Horst Arts & Music Festival announces a winter edition of their Lab series to take place from the 11th - 13th December in collaboration with KU Leuven & Nachtplan.
Following the effects of COVID-19, Horst utilises the explosion of a new digital cultural landscape for a weekend of multidisciplinary workshops attempting to address some of the issues we’ve faced this year. From the forced close of night-time venues, the uncertainty around financial support and re-opening of the night-time economy, reshuffling power structures that have negatively affected Black communities, and the value of arts and culture to our mental health and wellbeing.
The digital Lab explores these topics through five in-depth panels with guests including Eris Drew, Cornelius Harris, Zelda Fitzgerald, Authentically Plastic, Dee Digs, Lutz Leichsenring, Liese Kingma, Carin Abdulá, Kajetan Łukomski, Bogomir Doringer and more to be announced. These panels will be alternated with a variety of exploratory outdoor activities, performative experiences, screenings, interviews, and DJ sets.
Practicals about the Lab
The digital Lab will be broadcasted through a closed online platform.
Tickets cost € 35 and include a list of needed materials to experience the Lab to the fullest. In addition, a grant is provided if suffering financial hardship, please reach out to [email protected] to apply for the grant.
Horst is a movement dedicated to developing talent, cities, and spaces. We blend & celebrate the worlds of art, architecture and music. We create Labs, Exhibitions, and Festivals as momentums of transformative energy.
