2020 : A YEAR UNLIKE ANY OTHER
This year, there will be no physical fair. We decided to launch the largest online marketplace and meeting platform for local cultural initiatives & artists: the NATIONA(A)L Artist e-Supermarket. Our e-Supermarket will showcase the products of our wonderful exhibitors for one year.
We stick to our promise: We reveal the best local cultural initiatives & artists to discover, meet and acquire. Our carefully selected content offers :
- The 'crème de la crème' of the local artistic and creative scene active in the following disciplines: fashion, visual arts, books, design & music.
- An e-shop offering local cultural & creative products, ethical and stimulating the creation of new imaginaries.
- Opportunities for valuable online meetings with our exhibitors (concerts, workshops, personal meetings via video-conferencing, etc.).
Our selection committee will continue to place great importance on local artists and cultural/creative products that meet high ethical standards and promote openness to other cultures.
Belgium is the country with the highest density of creativity per square meter in the world.
Creative resources benefit wellbeing and act as a bottom-up therapy for society.
People need more frequent and closer contact with cultural and creative products and more time to enjoy, touch, read, feel, see, hear and experience creativity because culture drives social development, understanding and cohesion.
