B-Classic - Studio Classic

Studio Classic

Studio Classic is the atelier of B-Classic. It is where we create space for artist development, both literally and figuratively, and offer classical musicians the opportunity to become the creators of tomorrow. This is done in collaboration with VONK.

VONK offers a studio space for artists in the cities of Hasselt and Genk. VONK currently houses twenty promising up-and-coming and professional artists. The organisation provides a layered platform within which artistic talent can develop by addressing all aspects of artistic entrepreneurship. This is done by offering intensive coaching programmes, developing national and international networks and organising various exhibitions.

 Open Call
