Art + Music

No zebra without stripes. No Romeo without Juliet. No macaroni without cheese.

For us that means no And& Connect festival without Art & Music.

We’ll bring artists and entrepreneurs closer together in surprising ways.You’ll be able to explore the overlay between art, science, and entrepreneurship. With artists who use modern technology to challenge us and our way of doing things.

This year, the creative minds of our starting entrepreneurs can enjoy no less than 3 exclusive Art & Music pieces, with the help of our partners Cas-Co, Werktank, STUK and Het Depot.

After an inspiring talk or an interactive workshop, you’re welcome to stop by and take a close look at ‘The Library of the Winds’ by Haseeb Ahmed or appreciate ‘La Lumiterale’ by Laurie-Anne Jaubert. Or, when feeling musical, make sure to stop by the LUCA chapel for an exclusive organ melody called ‘Nachthorn, played by Maxime Denuc, a Belgian premiere that you shouldn't miss!


Speakers - National and international speakers gather at Leuven, city of innovation, to inspire scale-ups, start-ups, innovators and business enthusiasts.
