As an unexpected yet thriving contemporary art hub, the heart of Europe boasts a ton of opportunities for young creatives to hone their skills and find their voice underneath the wings of excellent mentors. Whether it’s architecture, fashion, bookbinding, or even tapestry that floats your artistic boat, together, these five art and design schools in Brussels offer it all.
With campuses in Brussels, Leuven, Ghent, and at Genk’s creative heartthrob C-Mine, the Dutch-language LUCA has become a sprawling art force across Flanders. In affiliation with Belgium’s top-ranking university (KU Leuven), the modern and newly reorganized LUCA organizes four- and five-year programs in a wide array of disciplines, from a tech-heavy education in film and audiovisual arts at the praised Narafi school—which incidentally calls an especially photogenic Brussels castle home—to an expansive interior architecture department.
