Will you complete this plan from your personal experience of the city? 

In early 2022, artist Elly Van Eeghem sent out a question­naire to a group of people who, like herself, had been in­volved in recent years in the ‘Stadsatelier’ of Voo?uit arts centre, a program supporting artistic work about and in the city. 

With these fellow artists, cultural workers and partici­pants, Van Eeghem checked for the ‘publicness’ of the city’s public places. What are shared beloved or less beloved 

places, and why? 

Public Plan Ghent N°1 is a mapping of various meanings of ‘the public’. The plan re­mains unfinished and can be completed by whoever holds it. 

During the city festival OPENBARE WERKEN (Public Works) different plans are gathered and assembled into one gigantic cartographic patchwork. It is walked on, sat on, discussed by and lived by the attending public.
