As an animation student, you will develop into an idiosyncratic, artistic creator within the stimulating framework of the KASK & Conservatorium campus. We offer a solid technical and theoretical footing for the personal expression you develop in the practical workshops. Teachers support your quest for the world you want to create. Drawing and 2D animation are the start, your curiosity and tenacity the driving force for your own path and vision within your medium.

Those who learn to make films with us do so in the context of an art school. In our filmmaking course, you immerse yourself in all aspects of creating a film. The teachers guide you intensively and personally in your development into a filmmaker with a supported vision. The programme creates room for experimenting and pushing the boundaries of thought and action. To this end, a lot of films are made. Each assignment results in a personal piece of work that takes shape thanks to constant feedback from lecturers and fellow students.

The drama programme teaches you to develop an artistic practice driven by curiosity and a sustainable research attitude. The programme trains you to relate practically and discursively to current developments in the performing arts but also to experiment and look for new artistic contents and (mixed) forms. The teachers encourage you to collaborate with fellow students and cross-pollinate with other disciplines within KASK & Conservatorium. The programme thus also reaps the benefits of being embedded in a broad multidisciplinary art school.

“Tradition is about passing on the fire, not worshipping the ashes.” This is how Austrian composer-conductor Gustav Mahler paraphrased an animated speech by French politician Jean Jaurès. For the passionate team of teachers at Ghent Conservatorium, this attitude is a matter of course. Studying classical music in Ghent is a conscious and sensible choice.

Music is not created overnight. The composer invents and plays music on existing or dreamed-of instruments, improvises, shares, writes down after long consideration or records music on an electronic sound carrier. This field of tension is incessantly evolving to this day.

Musical instrument making focuses on the history and structure of musical instruments, for the purpose of building, reconstructing and preserving these fascinating objects. It concentrates mainly on the study and (re)construction of historical instruments, investigating the acoustic possibilities of these 'sound instruments'. Moreover, it does so in the interest of the performance practice of old, but equally of new music.

From concert hall to lift, from department store to restaurant, from symphony to ringtone, live or on carrier, via internet, radio or in the cloud, ... More than ever, music in all its forms is ubiquitous. Choosing a master's in music theory and writing is choosing to pass on a long tradition of theoretical reflection on the phenomenon of music in an increasingly fast-moving world.
