30.04 11:00 - 16:00

For the co-creative project ‘Splendid’, which ran from 2018 to 2022, photographer Vincen Beeckman worked together with the residents of Ghent’s Zuid neighbourhood. Beeckman visited them to share coffee and cake and to gather countless stories, memories and anecdotes. Based on these conversations he wrote poems, collected photographs and took some of his own. 

He brought all this together in a book of the same name, which gives a modest insight into the diverse neighbourhood. The book ‘Splendid’ will be presented together with a walk through the neighbourhood as part of OPENBARE WERKEN. Join Vincen and discover Ghent’s Zuid neighbourhood through his collected stories.
