A city is never a finished product, and Ghent is growing. How can we set about tackling the shortage of space in an intelligent and sustainable manner? How do we ensure that the city remains liveable? What ideas and dreams are there for the future? Artist and Vooruit city resident Elly Van Eeghem has created a multidisciplinary exhibition on this very subject entitled: ‘A glimpse of where we're going’ and it doesn’t conform to planning guidelines for the zone.
Curious to find out how they see urbanization in the future, Elly Van Eeghem has invited contributions by some thirty artists, scientists, entrepreneurs and urban planners. She also shows pilot projects by Ghent residents, concrete answers to some of the challenges Ghent will face in the future.
