A large part of the life of Ghent citizens takes place in the streets, squares and parks of the city. The organisation and management of this public space tells a lot about who we are and what we stand for as a city and society.

This exhibition will introduce you to the findings and reflections of five young people who took to the streets and scanned public places they care about. They show how they see the city. In addition, you will see photos taken by photographers Yasmina Besseghir and Sipan Hota, which show how the people of Ghent experience their streets. 

This activity takes place on a location within the low emission zone

Are you driving to Ghent? First check whether you may enter the city centre with your vehicle. Clean vehicles may enter the city centre free of charge, polluting vehicles have to pay. Is your vehicle allowed to enter, but do you not have a Belgian or Dutch number plate? You will ALWAYS have to register!
