Gouvernement is an interdependent, nomadic and cultural platform in Ghent.

A project appealing to a variety of people and disciplines, it always emphasizes the cross-disciplinary, trial & error and unexpected. We aim to question, research and explore new ways of developing and presenting multidisciplinary interactions.

Night Shift

Night Shift is a nomadic project creating an artistic playground in the iconic landmark of a large art organisation or institution. Artists from different disciplines can present work in an informal setting and make collective use of the eclectic, public platform provided by Gouvernement and the partners involved. As actions and interventions succeed each other swiftly, they intertwine and interconnect with the building, the public and each other.

Between city, port and hinterland, in the vicinity of the iconic Langerbrugge electricity plant, the layered art-project KONNEKTOR has its ground. KONNEKTOR started off with summer residencies in 2020. Various artists relied on the local history, the social fabric and the eclectic landscape ecology for their research and projects. Gradually KONNEKTOR manifests itself through a further participatory path of diverse presentations, interventions, publications and ateliers.

KONNEKTOR is an initiative by Gouvernement in collaboration with the OBRA|BAKEN, the municipality of Evergem, North Sea Port, Project group Gentse Kanaalzone, Light Festival Ghent, Arts platform PLAN B, Arts centre Vooruit and Comeet. As a supralocal cultural project, KONNEKTOR is funded by the Flemish government.

Nomadic Workspace for New Masters is a residency programme fully dedicated to the (individual) artists, their practice and their needs for development. With the artists as its principal compass, every residency is made according to the particular requirements expressed by the artists in order to offer them the appropriate support.



Gouvernement thoughtfully invests in meaningful collaborative projects and valuable partnerships, as every project has its specific needs. Besides our long-term partnership with Arts Centre Vooruit, we collaborate on a temporary base with CAMPO, Beursschouwburg, De Studio, Opera Ballet Vlaanderen, detheatermaker, Decoratelier, NTGent, KASK and LUCA School of Arts.
