VONK - together with Katelijne De Backer Flanders in the USA are organizing a panel discussion to stimulate the exchange of visual arts between Belgium and the United States.
During this talk we will cover items such as : “Building and maintaining a network”, “Cultural differences between Europe and the USA in the arts and art organizations”, “The consequences of being funded by the government or a foundations”, and “Ethnic diversity in the arts”.
We will approach the panel more as a group discussion between four people in which the audience are encouraged to ask questions and intervene. We will end the evening with an informal reception.
