What we are all about

As a stage for art with a mission, we move within the cultural world using our manifesto as a guide and our pillars as a basis.


Art is a gateway to a bigger world. In the context of social art, we produce and present photo exhibitions.


To navigate well within visual culture, it is important to understand it. That is why we strive to improve visual literacy.


Makers and other culture professionals have to navigate the cutlural world as well. That is why we share our knowledge with volunteers and young talent.


Who says art and business do not mix? As gang of artists, we keep the ship afloat thanks to the help of professionals, trainees and interns.
