OVERTOON vzw, platform for sound art, is urgently looking for a PART-TIME BUSINESS MANAGER (M/F/X) half-time contract of indefinite duration


Since 2013, OVERTOON has been developing its activities as a platform for sound arts. This is a hybrid domain, ranging from installation art based on sound, possibly with a performance aspect, over certain experimental media art to some visual art using sound.

In addition, Overtoon wants to create more familiarity with and understanding of sound arts, both among specific target groups such as art students, and among the general public.
