More about the conference

From 25.10 until 30.10.2021, M would like to welcome you inside and outside the museum walls for the annual ICOM CECA conference. On Friday 29.10, a field trip to Brussels, the capital of Belgium, is on the agenda.

During this day you will get to know a number of Brussels museums and their educational activities. We zoom in and focus on a number of interesting practical examples of co-creation and participation. Furthermore, we will take enough time to discover the beautiful collections of the museums.


We start at the Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium. In the afternoon, we offer a lunch in the Brussels Town Hall and a number of guided tours in various Brussels city museums. For the afternoon programme, eight Brussels museums have prepared a fascinating programme for you.
