The Buda Factory is a creative “roundtable” for people with entrepreneurial spirit: students, product developers, designers, copywriters, event managers, theatre makers… you name it. What binds them together is the desire to dive into the pool together and enrich one another’s projects. Buda invests not only in its own infrastructure, but also in a network of organisations and companies that make their expertise available to the Buda community. Every form of innovation arises from an intense collaboration between players from different disciplines. Reciprocity is the keyword here: everyone must become stronger in his field.
Zebrastraat: Knowledge centre
During the last few years, Zebrastraat Ghent has developed into a stimulating knowledge centre with a strong interest in art. Every two years we organize a Biennial called Update, linked with the New Technological Art Award (NTAA) contest, which tries to fill in a gap in the mainstream art world, by paying attention to the technological developments that drive our global culture.
NTAA selects and presents creations in which the culture-forming role of technology occupies a central place. Low or high tech, intuitive or experimental, the creations always draw our attention to actual innovative trends. The exhibition of achievements of the selected winners is a compass that orients you to the relevant temporal and resilient use of technology in the artistic sector.

A space entirely dedicated to contemporary artistic and cultural practices emerging from the fusion of computer, telecommunication, network and media.
BOZAR is The Centre for Fine Arts is located at the heart of Brussels. The Centre, a palace of the arts created in 1928 by Victor Horta and covers all art disciplines. Creativity, quality, and artistic diversity have been at the heart of the Centre’s mission since its foundation. But for art not to be something abstract and distant, for it to be truly part of the “culture” of a society – and particularly in a city as variegated and international as Brussels – the public must be able to experience it in a way that is both natural and lively. Art and people must find and recognise each other, must interact with and enrich each other. For the greater happiness of all.
