Six culture houses join forces during the biennial GIF, a contemporary arts festival. GIF pays tribute to Ghent’s vibrant cultural dynamic.

You will be able to see and hear works by familiar and new names. Art that colours outside the lines and artistic projects that mirror everyday life are central. GIF pays tribute to the imagination in, for and with Ghent.

The programme is filled with theatre, dance, literature, performance, music, exhibitions, installations, a party, etc. Do you want to know if there’s something you like? Have a look at the website.
