In recent years our drama programme has strongly evolved to the needs of the artistic scene. This has caused several new evolutions to emerge, in which music, movement and other art disciplines are ubiquitous. In this new scene, we have podium arts, location projects and mixed media projects. This ever changing world needs a new kind of theater creator.
The KASK campuses, Bijloke and Kunsttoren, are at the epicentre of Ghent, the cultural capital of Flanders. This haven at the heart of the historic city is very welcoming to students. Ghent is very receptive to the international art scene. Just a stone’s throw from the KASK campuses are the Vooruit arts centre, the S.M.A.K. (Municipal Museum of Contemporary Art) and the Higher Institute for Fine Arts (H.I.S.K.).
The Bijloke campus hosts an abundance of cultural activities, notably the Gent Jazz Festival, the Conservatory’s jazz programme, the KASK drama programme, the Ghent municipal museum, or STAM, the Bijloke concert hall, the LOD production house for music and musical theatre, the Compagnie C de la B theatrical troupe, the BAM Institute for Visual, Audiovisual and Media Art, and more. KASK works together with all of these cultural players, as well as the International Film Festival Ghent, S.M.A.K., MuHKA, Netwerk Aalst, the Croxhapox Gallery, and others, offering our students an ideal artistic framework for their studies.
