Anthony studied real estate brokerage services in Ghent and has been volunteering for our non-profit organisation since December 2015. His interest in and appreciation of art are the result of his upbringing, which resulted in a life as a continuous sensorial process in which hearing, seeing, feeling, making and tasting merge. Anthony also draws and exhibits himself. He is fully behind the mission of DAVID vzw.
Guy is highly knowledgeable when it comes to electronics and does not shy away from a challenge. He also draws and paints for a living, is educating himself in animation and has a passion for experimental music. His engagement with DAVID vzw gives him new inspiration for his own projects. He recommends volunteering to everyone.
Astrid studied art history at Ghent University and is the organisation’s driving force. In 2009, she started a discussion on the ‘condition humaine’, which resulted in the ‘I AM HURT’ project. The debate led to ‘Art as a mirror of the soul’ (2011), the exhibition displaying the man’s literal cry of pain. Meanwhile, DAVID association is slowly but surely growing into an art and reflection platform.
