BELGIUM: Nearly abandoned village Doel – Transformation into an Urban Art Paradise

Doel is part of the municipality of Beveren in the Flemish province of East Flanders in Belgium. Plans to expand the huge closeby Antwerp Port to Doel and demolish the village have been in place since 1965. However, continuous protests by the villagers have prevented this so far. In the meantime, graffiti has been used as a helpful tool and the village declared itself as kind of an open urban art gallery. Of course this attracts a lot of artists from all around and also art loving visitors. Also since 2022 the fantastic DOEL FESTIVAL organized by PARADISE CITY and KLUB DRAMATIK takes place regularly with international djs, musicians and urban creators.
