HISK offers a post-academic course in audiovisual and visual art. The Institute provides 24 young artists from Belgium and abroad individual studios for two years each. The emphasis at the Institute lies in individual practice. The program aims to achieve a practical balance between study in the studio, discussions with visiting lecturers, workshops, reading groups, field trips and public presentations. The international and culturally diverse composition of the candidate laureate group makes for cross-pollination and dialogue. The diversity of the international visiting lecturers (such as artists, curators, critics, and theoreticians) provides a framework within which the candidate laureates learn to examine their own work with a critical eye. The unique concept of HISK allows participants a wide range of opportunities to invest in critical research for their work within a broader artistic, cultural and societal context. At the end of a two-year cycle, the candidates receive a Laureate of the Higher Institute for Fine Arts certificate. Since 1997, 184 laureates have graduated from the Institute. The majority of them are now pursuing successful professional careers in the international art world.

HISK is financed by the Flemish Community — Ministry of Education; for its premises it is supported by the City of Ghent. HISK is sponsored by Vedett and Levis.
