iMAL (Fund Friends of)
Philanthropists support projects of iMAL, centre of art and culture in Brussels, which supports artists and creative activities relating to technology.
What is it about?
iMAL is a space for artistic practices around the creative and critical use of new technologies. iMAL connects a community of artists, thinkers, makers and citizens from Belgium and abroad and offers a completely renewed infrastructure to support a program focussing on research, production and presentation.
By following artistic practice in all its phases and facets, iMAL is directly connected to the latest artistic practices, social trends and technological developments. As a workshop, laboratory and presentation platform at the intersection of art, technology, science and society, it occupies a unique position by connecting contemporary art production with other sectors - locally, nationally and internationally.
iMAL seeks to grow, strengthen and diversify this community. In the years to come, iMAL will broaden its operations and make them accessible to new audiences. In this program, the unique expertise of artists and their special view on society and technology is always at the center. iMAL wants to use this view to inform about (technical) developments, to inspire and encourage citizens to actively participate in the latest digital cultures, but also to empower them and teach them to be critical of the challenges associated with the digital revolution.
iMAL uses its unique position as a platform to connect other artists' initiatives, workshops and festivals with a focus on art, science and technology and sees it as its mission to translate these activities into a visible and audience-friendly way, building a bridge between the professional field and a broader public.
