The Thalie Art Foundation’s mission is to support various forms of socially-engaged contemporary art with artistic practice as a tool of emancipation and social link. The Foundation will open a residency and an art center in 2017.

This artist residency welcomes artists and curators committed to societal themes. The artistic proposal must take place in and around Brussels, European capital with a great cultural and social diversity. The project is to be in collaboration with local actors involved with the cultural and social life of Brussels. The Thalie Art Foundation Residency’s goal is to implement and to involve to a new approach to contemporary creation by involving the audience as a protagonist of the artistic project and by supporting the production of projects specific by their diversity of work processes and forms of visibility (Films, Performances, Seminars, Editions, Exhibitions, Conferences …). The final project will be shown at the foundation.






Nka Foundation invites creative practitioners from around the world for the 2016 International Earth Sculpture Symposium at Abetenim Arts Village in Ghana. Practitioners in the visual arts, building arts, landscape architecture, environmental design and others are all welcome to participate. We will immerse ourselves in the local environment and create site-specific works through use of earth and other materials from the environment. Our rural arts village provides the participant with time and space away from the everyday stresses of city/studio life to focus and investigate own practice, creating the possibility for discovery, collaboration and growth. The arts village has an openair theatre, workspaces and guest houses for your accommodation. Most evenings will be used for reviewing workshop progress along with artist lectures, impromptu performances and presentations by workshop participants. By alternating work and dialogues, we anticipate cross fertilization of ideas. Join us!
