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 Thursday 28.10 you are welcome in M.

The combination of contemporary art and old masters makes M unique in Flanders. The museum is also an ideal meeting place, complete with a central courtyard and the roof terrace that offers a breathtaking view of the Leuven skyline.


The conference programme includes various workshops, special interest groups, research workshops, poster sessions and lectures on the theme of co-creation. There will also be time for networking, visiting the museum and sampling both ancient and contemporary art. We will conclude the day together in Leuven's town hall with a snack and a drink.
