Since 2013 the Intercultural Centre De Centrale in Ghent is an inspiring place in an artistic environment. Young people from about of 16 to 18 years are challenged over the course of 10 weeks to discover and improve on several skills in an alternative, artistic environment.
In addition they also get a taste of the jobs associated with a cultural centre like De Centrale with performing, music, dance, etc.
The first project group was composed of OKAN pupils (special class for foreign newcomers) from VISO Gent. The second group consists of pupils in special secondary educations.
