At the Flanders Festival Ghent we take it as read that everyone has the right to cultural development. Even those who may not have the means, or who find it physically difficult to attend concerts and performances. This is why we have come up with ‘We Share Music’, a series of compelling projects in which children, disadvantaged groups, the differently abled and the elderly can experience unforgettable musical moments. These projects are only possible because of the annual contributions made by the members of our Festival Club and a few loyal partners.
Projects that are part of the We Share Music programme:
As of October 2020, for the first time ever, we will be bringing Flanders Ghent Festival to the schools ! After all, the measures taken during the corona crisis had a major impact on the emotions and well-being of children and young people. By bringing music to them, young people who cannot come to the Flanders Ghent Festival with their class still get the opportunity to enjoy top concerts.
People with a visual impairment benefit from a serious discount, free assistance, transport to and from the concerts, programme booklets in braille or large print and the chance to meet kindred spirits after the performance.
People with a hearing impairment also enjoy exceptional services. For example, we always select a few concert evenings on which you can enjoy the performance for a reduced price and with a hearing loop.
The Ghent UiTPAS gives people with preferential concessions a direct and very substantial discount on the purchase of their tickets for the Flanders Festival Ghent. These tickets are available from the 'Tickets Gent' box office (now only accessible by phone via +32 9 225 02 02 or by mail via email@example.com). In addition, anyone who holds an UiTPAS can save points by attending our concerts.
Art especially for children. Annual musical celebration for the very youngest children: come with your baby, toddler, pre-schooler or child and enjoy delightful tailor-made performances.
During Festival@Home we put on concerts in various hospitals and residential care homes for the fifth year in succession especially for those who would find it difficult to get to our concert venues themselves.
An Exciting Adventure! KidsOdeGand music holiday
Under the flag of KidsOdeGand, Flanders Festival Ghent organises an unforgettable music holiday for children aged between 6 and 12, together with Musica, Casco Phil and UGent. We will make music together, cook healthy meals together with a real-life chef and philosophise together. But also experiment with sounds and electronica, and go on a voyage of discovery right through Ghent, even by boat!
