The School

From January 4-May 13 Serena will be in residence at The School in Hasselt, Belgium. The school is a post-academic and ongoing multidisciplinary festival, residence and happy city experiment.

This innovative project brings together a diverse array of 16 selected international artists, musicians, and designers to develop new approaches to “re-thinking the city”.
