Teambuilding for companies and teams of teachers
Are you looking for an appropriate teambuilding event for your company or faculty? We will be happy to organise a workshop tailored to the interests of your group. Based on the extensive expertise of our guides, we will propose a suitable formula in consultation with you. Why not zoom in on art or creative techniques to bring your team closer together? Even a stolid mathematician could, for instance, reveal surprising new insights during the discussion of a work of art. Get to know your colleagues from an entirely new perspective!

The Perfume of Ostend
A digital tour of the city, with James Ensor as your guide
Listen to James Ensor: painter, musician and passionate resident of Ostend. During this unique ‘The Perfume of Ostend’ city tour, Ensor will guide you through the streets of the city. Following in the footsteps of artists such as Léon Spilliaert and Constant Permeke, he will show you an Ostend that you have never seen before. But, above all, you will discover Ostend as seen through the eyes of Ensor himself.
You can enjoy the walk at your own pace, accompanied by an audio guide with a screen and a GPS navigation system. The text is narrated by acclaimed actors Wim Opbrouck and Els Dottermans.
The tour can be obtained at Toerisme Oostende vzw, Monacoplein 2, 8400 Ostend.
