During Ghost x Van Eyck, the area around St Bavo's cathedral will be the scene of an ultimate contemporary tribute to Jan Van Eyck. No less than 25 artists, collectives and musicians will be challenged to make a unique interpretation of one of the works of art by the Flemish master painter.

Several medieval locations like the Castle of Gerald the Devil, the terrace of NTGent and the Belfry will be transformed into mini stages where the public at large can enjoy short but powerful performances. In the wake of the host, the audience will be guided from one stage to the other. The programme will include a surprising variety of genres and forms of art created by talented national and international artists.
