The Glint is that little moment of reflection, the manifestation of an idea that suddenly pushes us to discuss, debate, demand or highlight a subject or theme that is close to our hearts, whether it's the issue of biodiversity, social justice, privilege, democracy...With the Full Circle collective, we want to put together an engaged exhibition based on that personal spark that drives us to take action. We're calling for applications to put on a group exhibition in a great space where you can exhibit your project, such as video, painting, sound, photography, sculpture and so on. The exhibition will run from 23 May to 07 July at Full Circle in Ixelles

The multi-disciplinary location offers many possibilities for installation, space, audience and events around the exhibition.
