Arts, culture, heritage
Why your conference in arts, culture and heritage will feel like a fish in water in Flanders
Arts, culture, and heritage is engrained in Flanders’ DNA. Our region is steeped in a cultural heritage that goes back many centuries. We have a multitude of world-class museums, galleries, and arts centres in addition to a host of art events that are organised throughout the year. In other words: the ideal environment for your conference in any of these fields.
We invite art professionals from around the world to actively engage with our art ecosystem and its players. Aside from research and development activities, we provide a platform for matchmaking between artists, art organisations and art professionals in Flanders and abroad.
How your association benefits from our expertise
Flanders is home to excellent universities and world-changing institutions, as well as a vibrant music scene, famous museums, and art collections. The performing arts scene in Flanders is characterised by a dynamic and colourful mix of dance, theatre, and performance. All these experts offer plenty of robust support for your conference.
With a large network of professionals in many different art disciplines we focus on connecting the local, regional expertise in the arts, culture, and heritage to the international stage. We want to bring culture to Flanders and the artists, experts, and creativity of Flanders to the world.
