The name ifa laboratory derives from the collaboration with ifa gallery and means in Chinese the methods of arts.

ifa laboratory is a consultancy and a social enterprise.

The creation of ifa laboratory is based on the idea of highlighting the added value of art and culture. “Art for art’s sake” is good, but not good enough. Not if art will be sustainable and organically integrated in the society. Thus ifa laboratory seeks to promote art and creativity through original perspectives and contribute to the valorization of art.

ifa laboratory aims to demonstrate that art can be used to the benefit of different strata of society, whether the simple individual, a neighbourhood, a business, an organisation, a government. In parallel with our services in cultural strategic relations and insertion of creativity in companies we have started a community cohesion programme where artists interact with the local community of the Marolles in Brussels.

We work from a big art venue that can be used by for any types of collaboration and exploration in what it is to be a laboratory.
