It is a glass construction that looks out onto the old gateway at Sint-Veerleplein. The glass fits in well with the historical surroundings and creates an inviting atmosphere.
The showpiece of this concept is the centrally located multimedia data table, which you can use to request information about Ghent and – although to a lesser extent – about other art cities and East Flanders through innovative touch technology. The information is presented in a very accessible manner, also for persons with physical or visual impairments.
The inquiry desk can be reached through the Appelbrugparkje, along the jetty of the Old Fish Market, passing first through the subway created by artist Steve Locatelli for this project. He was inspired by the Werregarenstraatje, the Graffiti street, and the Old Fish Market of the olden days, of long ago.
