Twice a year, Pilar puts a controversial theme in the spotlight during the multidisciplinary festival PILAR ASAP. The festival creates the perfect opportunity to blend different artistic and scientific disciplines. The spotlight is on the works of (young) artists that you should discover as soon as possible. Check the events calendar to stay up to date on the next editions!
