Three designers (Valerie Bervoet, Cas Moor and Sep Verboom) and two local made-to-measure companies (Compaan and Labeur) have combined their passion for ‘making’ in this exhibition.

The ‘vol+maakt’ exhibition is a Ghent pilot project by the Ministry of Makers (Design Platform of the Ghent Region) and the City of Gent. ‘Sociaal Gemaakt’ (socially made)is a socio-economic co-creation project aimed at a long-term collaboration between the social and regular economy.

Every design object on display has been made locally, in a sustainable and socially responsible manner and according to traditional methods. It is a story of mutual respect, complementary skills and a shared love for natural materials.
