4x9 Stories: This Weekend #10
Each weekend the Manifesta 9 Mediation Department invites a number of special guests who give guided tours based on their own expertise. Whether it be a sociologist or a musician, a cook or a football player, one of our curators or one of the neighbours of our venue; each tour provides a new perspective on the exhibition.
Our guests this weekend / your hosts are:
Saturday August 25, 3pm, Anniek Nagels
Anniek Nagels, Member of the municipal executive responsible for Culture, youth and Students, City of Genk. After a period in which Genk had to process the closure of the mines and had to reflect on the possibilities of redeveloping the mine buildings the city is now investing strongly in culture and creative industries. This not without consequence, as the city recently won the Flemish Culture Prize for Local Cultural Policy.
Sunday August 26, 3pm, Luc Dirckx
As Community Manager of Watershei Luc Dirckx knows all the ins and outs of the Genk city quarter of Watershei, where Manifesta 9 takes place.
Each Saturday and Sunday
