Gouvernement is an interdependent artistic workcenter and cultural platform in central Ghent; a project that targets a variety of people and disciplines (visual arts, music, performance…). The emphasis lies on cross-fertilazation, “trial & error” and the unexpected. Gouvernement holds concerts, expos, other less-categorizable incidents and a residency program.

Partnerships and alliances

Gouvernement actively invests in meaningful collaborative projects and thoughtful, high quality partnerships with, for example, Kunstencentrum Vooruit, CAMPO, Beursschouwburg, art academies in and outside Ghent and other cultural organisations aiming to question, research and explore new ways of developing and presenting contemporary art, multidisciplinary interactions and art practice.

With Vooruit, Gouvernement monthly organises off the grid performances, hors catégorie concerts and promising projects with local and international artists.

Gouvernement is also supported by the Flemish Governement.


Gouverneur, the blonde barley beer brewed by Gouvernement, is now available at Vooruit Café, Campo Victoria, Campo Nieuwpoort and Café Ventura.
