Ostend: it means the sea, free time, tourist activities, delicious restaurants, fine hotels and, most of all, a city where three cultural players have being working on quality artistic projects for several years already. Festival Theater aan Zee, kunstencentrum Vrijstaat O. and Mu.ZEE have got together to form Kunstvaarders vzw! The organisation wants to do its bit to put this seaside town on the cultural map.
Theater aan Zee puts on more than 100 productions or 350 performances every year. Vrijstaat O. is the arts centre that organises exceptional activities in a variety of art disciplines at one of the most beautiful locations in Ostend, the Droge Coo on the seafront. And finally, Mu.ZEE coordinates the contemporary art collection of the Province of West Flanders and the City of Ostend and excels with temporary exhibitions and presentations of this vast collection.
The aim is to offer companies the opportunity to sponsor the diverse cultural life in the city of Ostend on a yearly basis. The partnership between these different organisations in Ostend ensures that a sponsor is not bound to one discipline or to a fixed period, but can put together a crossover of various arts.
Kunstvaarders vzw is a unique concept that makes it possible to offer good-quality, long-term, interdisciplinary sponsor returns to those who love Ostend.
