Me and Dex went to visit Manoeuvre in Ghent. It is a studio/ collective/ cultural place where artist work together with local people to achieve a combination of low and high art related projects.
We got to talks to Chris Rostaert who is a textile designer herself. She started the place and gave us a tour and talked us through some projects.
Many artist have done some amazing projects with people. One of the important things of this collective is the participation aspect and the combination of hobby and fine arts. I have seen some amazing secret projects coming to live and I am truly amazed by the results. It was a very nice experience to see all the beautiful things they do.
Make sure you visit their website! they always have workshops going on!
Here are some sneak peek pictures:
