For Theatre by the Sea curator Marie Mees (LUCA Ghent) and guest curator Caroline Pauwels launched a competition for Master of Fine Arts students in cooperation with KASK, LUCA and La Cambre under the name The Optimist Class. S.M.A.K. director Philippe Van Cauteren was chairman of the jury.

The students were given the task of designing optimistic sails for more optimistic and better times. After the various lockdowns, which also affected the youngsters and made it difficult for them to 'sail out', they were given the original task of depicting a cheerful summer and wonder in The Optimist Class.

The result is an exhibition that runs until Sunday 8 August 2021 as part of TAZ. Philippe Van Cauteren chaired the jury and looked at the entries. From the 39 participating students, Margot Van den Berghe was eventually chosen as the laureate.
