So to get the message across, Antwerp's creative community, in partnership with its city council, has been inviting creatives from across Europe to come and learn, network and collaborate with their Belgian counterparts. It's all part of a unique initiative called D.A.T.E (Discover Antwerp Through Experience).
This year, D.A.T.E has stepped things up a notch, by getting six of the visiting artists and designers to collaborate with their local equivalents and create unique artworks, inspired by each other's creations.
The 24 artworks have been turned into large-scale prints, which will be exhibited to the public, as well as 100 limited-edition postcard sets, which are being given away to fans of art and design everywhere. Beautifully produced and compiled in a chic collector box, they're available on a first-come, first-served basis here.
