The Higher Institute for Fine Arts is a post-graduate institute that combines art residency and individualized support with thorough advanced studies in the arts. The HISK provides young artists from Belgium and abroad with a workspace of their own and pedagogical guidance for a duration of two years.

The strength of the HISK is its unique model of cross-fertilisation of visiting lectureships, studio visits, exhibitions, Open Studios, seminars, master classes, public lectures, technical workshops, study trips within Belgium and abroad, etc. that are devised to respond to the artists’ needs. The HISK provides a safe haven for experiment and research with a flexible structure.

Since 1997, 269 artists from 45 countries have received the certificate of "Laureate of the Higher Institute for Fine Arts." The majority of them are now pursuing successful professional careers in the international art world.
