THE LAB

THE LAB is a residential artistic laboratory for arts for young audiences in Hasselt. THE LAB supports the ‘artist development’ of artists for young audiences with a residential, (inter)national and tailor-made threefold methodology.

THE LAB is an initiative of cultural center Hasselt / Krokusfestival with support from the city of Hasselt and the Flemish government and provides a furnished apartment in the center of the city (6 people) and a workplace / studio (120m²).

Type of residency

Research

THE LAB organises annually one shorter international masterclass and one international 9-day lab on a specific theme: 2019 – right to fail, 2020 – (over) protection, and 2021 – physicality.

An open call from CCHA / THE LAB follows for each of these labs and festival visits. Follow the information on our website and on Facebook. If you are interested, you can send an e-mail to krokusfestival@ccha.be for an open call with a clear motivation for participation (format), a CV and a photo.
