WHAT ELSE ANTWERP_

About Antwerp: This year WHAT ELSE EUROPE will take us to the Belgian city of Antwerp. With just 500.000 inhabitants, Antwerp is a rather small city, but has a very large and strong creative scene. The Royal Academy of Fine Arts is known across the globe and has developed many important designers of our time. As well, the art scene of the city is big and has greatly impacted the rest of Europe.

Also, this year the focus of What Else is to bring young creatives from different European countries together; to inspire each other and to be inspired in a new environment, meet like-minded people, create together and build friendships over the boarders.

During the week together we will learn about the city and the creatives living in Antwerp. We will meet the street art scene, talk with urban developers about Antwerp, take studio visits (for example a visit at Dries Van Noten and the Royal Academy) and we will host workshops with different artists.

What Else Antwerp is about You, the city, about building friendships, networking and co-creating.
