INFO

SORRY, NOT SORRY  is the label for street art in Ghent. In recent years, the City of Ghent has been actively developping a graffiti and street art policy.

Cultuur Gent, the city’s service for culture, supports individual artists, gives advices and sets up projects such as the SORRY, NOT SORRY Street Art Festival. With these initiatives, Cultuur Gent wants to give artists the opportunity to use the streets as their playground and canvas and bring street art to a broader audience.  On the other hand,  the team Eco-Werkhuis removes illegal graffiti, tags and stickers in the streets of Ghent, and they do this free of charge.

This street art map provides an overview of all legal murals that can be admired in Ghent.  Go for a walk and discover the city as an open air studio and exhibition space of this booming contemporary art form.
