UFO international visitor programme for curators and artists of visual arts

The UFO Visitors Programme introduces international professionals to support and development formats for (young) artists in Flanders and Brussels. The programme aims to connect multiple players in this field, 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 programme with meetings with artists, visits of exhibitions, as well as professional social events for a group of international curators.

Public programme for artists : a talk with international curators about support for artists in their country

We start the public programme with a tour through the VONK building 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 organization show emerging international artists?

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