About the location:
The conference takes place in Sint-Jozefkerk, a church in the multicultural neighbourhood Rabot. In Ghent, we face the challenge of repurposing some churches in the city. The choice of this church as the venue of this REFILL conference is a plea to first start experimenting with temporary initiatives and look for neighbourhood participation in order to find out the best future use of the church.
