PLEK vzw is an open youth work organization, recognized by Formaat vzw and the city of Ghent, which is committed to claiming space for young people in the city centre. Every month we give away the key of our location to a different group of young creative talent and support them in their process to organise exhibitions, concerts, talks, ... whatever they feel like.

We were founded about 6 years ago and since then we function as a safe haven for experimentation and frequently as a kickstarter for new organisations in the city.

We have welcomed over 60 organisations and individual artists over the years, like Stolfwolkcollectief, Girls Go Boom, Club Jacques, (Glimworm), De Kollifokkers, Kolder, HUNA Sounds, Luna Jong, Kelderkot, Xenogamy, El Sistema Pasota, Kwier, Vloedgolf, Dauwtrip, Bastorra, In Een Discotheek, Fadrea, Atelier Grotesk, MEER, Queer It Up, Bebe Books, Motif Collectif, LUCA Masters and many more...
