Every year, FLACC facilitates the realization of 10 to 12 artists' projects in Genk, in tune with the contemporary context of art making. The process-based projects are developed independently of any need for presentation, and are in most cases aimed at the realization of new work, reflection or experiment. Core concepts here are equality, cooperation, and space for experimentation. FLACC provides practical, material and financial assistance through extended collaborations with artists. The selected artists can, in this way, count on an extensive level of long term support. They can fully concentrate on their projects, whose process-driven realization, worked out in collaboration with FLACC, is often just as important as the physical result itself. FLACC suggests that this realization is sometimes even secondary to the deployment of activities which can aid the artistic development of the artist, such as theoretical deepening, experimentation and networking.
