Het Bos is one of my favorite places in Antwerp because there is probably no spot as versatile as this one. It’s an artistic residence in the center of the city. It’s a place for artists, makers, musicians and art lovers.
In its contemporary walls you can find the Bosbar, which serves from coffee to soup to tasty Bosbeer; a concert hall, exposition space, a stage for theater, performance, film or other shows, and space for creation and residence. It’s not possible to simply be rented, but Het Bos likes to work together with people who have a story to share.
You can find a vast program on their website and they organize many concerts, album releases, workshops, exhibitions, parties and events of all kind.
Powered by Boslabs, an artistic lab and creative atelier, they organize free workshops for youngsters through all kinds of different art forms. It’s normally on Wednesday afternoons, but during vacation it’s in the evenings.
Over this summer there is going to be an ice cream store accompanied by a film and music program in the Bosbar.
Het Bos is always looking for volunteers who like to get to know the city and its artistic scene, so feel free to contact and visit!
