Wetsi Art Gallery and Café Congo
Formerly a textile factory before being acquired by Citydev in 2015, Studio CityGate is now a social and cultural hub promoting artistic creativity across a range of disciplines. Opened in 2018, it is home to artists, artisans and entrepreneurs as well as a public skate park and climbing gym. The site is currently managed by Entrakt, which oversees the temporary occupancy and ensures sustainable biodiversity, but in a few years it is set to be completely redeveloped into a complex including homes, a school, shops and workshops.
One of the current occupants is the Wetsi Art Gallery. Founded in 2019, it aims to promote the work of African and Belgian-African artists and to build bridges between cultures. The space can also be used for exhibitions, discussions and talks.
Not far from the gallery, Café Congo is an artistic venue offering ‘radical hospitality’ with a focus on resistance, solidarity and creation. It fosters the development of ideas, perspectives and projects without the requirement to produce content and without any political pressure. Café Congo also hosts events, including slams, panel discussions, concerts, talks, film screenings and exhibitions.
