Transeuropa Open Ghent

Commoning Sport and Leisure

NEST, Graaf Van Vlaanderenplein 40, Ghent

10:00 - 18:00

Transeuropa Open Ghent’s workshop will bring people together across sport/art/activism fields around the theme of the commons, exploring the concept through a best practice in football. KAA Gent is the first and only club in Belgium, and one of the few around Europe, to have taken a commons approach to ownership, governance and structure. We will explore this commoning practice through the lens of sport to get us all thinking about the commons in and beyond the field of football. Out of these discussions and sessions, we will document the Voetbal in de Stad model as an example of a best practice as part of developing a ‘SPORT Commons’ publication.

Prospective program:
10:00 Start with introduction of participants and mapping of themes

12:00 Lunch break and work in groups

13:00 Coming together and presenting directions for joint or separate work

17:00 Closing with a performance and Q&A
