GIF pancarte 2

The city is the platform. The platform is the city.

A number of Ghent's arts organisations are joining forces for GIF, a new biennial festival tailored to the city. Ghent International Festival is a public invitation to embrace the unexpected on and off the stages in Ghent. Imagination is the starting point - imagination that is, by definition, polyphonic. Through temporary alliances, we present contemporary art from the most diverse artists, under the motto: a day without ecstasy is a lost day.

GIF builds on a Ghent tradition of openness and solidarity in which artistic concepts infiltrate everyday life and in which the distinction between creators and audience becomes blurred. Meet us in January 2022 for the first edition!

GIF, a cooperation between Voo?uit, CAMPO, KOPERGIETERY, NTGent, Opera Ballet Vlaanderen & S.M.A.K.
