Centre for Art and Contemporary Technology

Welcome to Icon-Brussels! Icon is a vibrant research and interactive learning centre, focused on art and contemporary technology. We provide a range of advanced short to mid-length courses, which introduce you in a dynamic way to the wonderful world of technological advances and artistic development. We aim to encourage conscious, creative and innovative entrepreneurs by offering them a platform for developing and promoting their products and services, which seek to fulfill a clear, positive creative and/or social purpose.

Ken Christiaens – founder of ICON-Brussels


We won’t be organising new courses for the summer 2017 period (and possibly) longer, due to the need of a sabattical period for rest & better orientation. In order to grow, ICON needs to engage into solid, trustworthy partnerships and find better means for financial/strategic growth. We will come back to you as soon as we believe we found these opportunities.

Propositions for collaboration or support are welcomed & can be addressed to ken@icon-brussels.be

Requests for professional group trainings are still welcomed.
For those who contributed or supported the ICON-philosophy over the last 2 years, THANK YOU very much.

Let’s hope we can continue the path as foreseen.
