AEC - Empowering Artists as Makers in Society (AEC-ARTEMIS, 2022-2025) is a project funded by the European Commission's Creative Europe programme to support European networks. The meeting allowed members of the 7 working groups to meet, share experiences and discuss the results of this project. Participants could also enjoy a closing concert by GAME (Ghent Advanced Music Ensemble) in MIRY concert hall.⁠

The first conference of EPASA (European Performing Arts Students' Association) was another success. Participating students from all over the EU gathered at the Paddenhoek to learn, share knowledge and make contacts. This year's theme was Resilient Horizons, covering topics such as resilience, portfolio management, safe spaces and student representation.⁠
