MORPHO, a nonprofit arts organisation based in Antwerp, is dedicated to the development of artistic practice. We give time, space and resources to artists with the aim of fostering a dynamic and a sustainable context for artistic work. We do so by creating studio space in the city, and residency programmes with partners abroad. As a residency, we annually host around 20 Belgian and international residents whom we support in their projects and trajectories. The programme consists of weekly collective sessions in an environment that encourages critical dialogue and playful experimentation. We also regularly organise events and presentations in the context of the garden and the refectory of the former monastery where the residency studios are located.
MeetFactory is a non-for-profit international center for contemporary art. They support original projects in the fields of visual arts, theater and music. They aim to create a space where art is alive, and artists are present, enhancing a direct exchange between international artists and the visitors, as well as between different disciplines and generations. Established in 2007, the centre operates the largest studio programme in Central Europe.
