Bringing people together
We bring together diverse groups in the art and design sector: artists, designers, cultural organisations, gallerists, curators, artisans and manufacturers. We aim to boost the art and design sector in Belgium by stimulating collaboration and cross-pollination.
Putting the added value of art and design in the spotlight
Through our initiatives, we want to convince people of the importance of art and design. Art and design can amaze us, stir our emotions and make us look at reality with new eyes. It enriches our lives.
Achieving concrete results
The results achieved by our participants are also our own results. Through well thought-out strategies, we want to reach a wide audience and facilitate commerce in art and design however possible.
Focus on the long-term and sustainability
With BAD we want to tell a sustainable story. That is why, in our collaboration with partners and participants, we focus on the long term. We also want to make our event itself as sustainable as possible. To do so, we are working together this year with Greentrack.
Offering a high-quality platform for talent
BAD is engaged in a range of ways, from the selection of participants to organising the communication and planning the presentation. The event is professionally overseen by a team of curators (Daan Rau, Johan Valcke and Tatjana Pieters) who will guarantee the quality of the work on display. Not only well-established names will be given a place. Young and unknown talents will also have a platform at BAD.
