Following international government advices and taking into consideration the rapidly escalating health crisis, the IN SITU team and partners have taken the decision to cancel the IN SITU ACT Conference in April. 

The IN SITU team and partners are currently evaluating the feasibility of postponing the event to a later date, probably in September (tbc).

IN SITU, European platform for artistic creation in public space will hold the IN SITU ACT conference in Brussels at La Tricoterie on Thursday, 23 April 2020.

On the menu: insights into new ways of developing artist-organiser relationship models, case studies illustrating the links between artistic creation in public space and the civil society, thematic speeches on sustainability, audience development and education, a performance by the IN SITU artist Benjamin Vandewalle, and many more opportunities to dive into artistic creation in public space!
