Mission & Strategy

The Royal Academy of Fine Arts KASK and the Gent Royal Conservatory constitute the School of Arts of University College Gent. It is an exceptional place where students are allowed to be ‘hors jeu’ for awhile, free from the pressures of the market and unhindered by day-to-day worries. The school aspires to be a refuge where young artists and designers can focus on their development and where they can train and perfect themselves in the artistic discipline of their choice in a serious, structured and thorough manner. In the middle of vibrant Ghent, the campuses are oases of quiet, places of concentration and dialogue, creation and encounter.
School of Arts Gent stimulates research in the arts and the investigative component in the artistic process.
The department of audiovisual arts emphasizes the development of an individual and artistic concept. At KASK, a student is considered an ‘author in the audiovisual arts’, not a cameraman, editor or soundtechnician. Students learn how to use all technical aspects of the medium in such way that they control the knowledge and are familiar with all aspects of the creative instrumentarium. However, technical skills are not a goal in themselves, but serve the artistic research of the audiovisual author.
The mission statement of the school defines its main tasks: development of the arts, education and research in an international perspective. It is therefore important to cooperate and network with European and international partners in order to participate in the ongoing international evolutions and actions.
