Het Bos is an artistic house in the middle of the city. After 16 years of isolation on the fringe of Antwerp, between the nettles and away from everything, Scheld'apen founded a new house in the center of town. A house for artists, bricoleurs, makers, thinkers and others. Het Bos not only offers art but also coffee, soup, organic beer, aimless palaver and dancing. Het Bos loves odd, queerness and deviance. Het Bos thinks and acts sustainable, it's her natural state. Het Bos an sich is relatively eternal, things in Het Bos are relatively temporary. Het Bos is a permanent experiment.
In Het Bos you'll find a cosy bar for coffee, beers and lunch, a concert venue, an exhibition space, spaces for theater film and other shows, creation and residency spaces, a kitchen, pizza oven and a mobile restaurant, a garden and several nooks and crannies.
Het Bos is a Cultural Center for the Youth supported by the city of Antwerp and a Multi-disciplinary Artistic workspace supported by the Flemish Community.
Open: Wednesday-Saturday from 12-00h and Sunday from 9-16h. These hours can shift depending on the program of the day.
