The Children's Art Factory is a project that is organised by Cultuurcentrum Genk and FLACC every year. This spearhead project was created in 2001 mainly aiming at an increased participation in art forms by underprivileged children and youngsters. Starting from their own artistic practice, a dozen artists work with a group of children in the Children's Art Factory for one week. This year the artists use an approach that enters into the children’s' own surroundings and daily reality. They may hold a mirror up in a very radical and direct way, or may lodge in our daily lives in a discrete and subtle manner. As usual, it will not be the preconceived purpose to create a work of art, but a means to speak, think and learn about art and living. The eight edition took place from 31 March to 5 April 2008. The participating artists are Mike Carremans, Jo Foulon, HAP (Jens De Schutter, Wim Waelput en Piet Mertens), Jan Mast, Hilke Muyldermans, Helena Sidiropoulos, Jochem Vanden Ecker, Frederik Van Simaey, Tom Vansant, Micha Volders and Lotte Vanhamel.
