In recent years, several important meetings took place that marked the need for a collective consultation body in the Flemish museum sector.
Tournée Museale op 29 april 2014
On the 29th of April 2014 we organized “Tournée Museale”, a sector moment in Muntpunt. During this meeting, we discussed the questions that were addressed in the 2014 march edition of the Faromagazine in the focus section ‘Museums in 2014’

Groot Onderhoud 2015
At the “Groot Onderhoud 2015” we continue the discussion, together with the entire heritage sector, in the session “Museums in the 21st century: what future beckons? “
2016 – Vision paper “Full commitment to museums”
The vision paper “Full commitment to museums” is very important for the future of the museums and the rest of the heritage sector, as a strategic orientation document on which the Flemish Museums Network has worked well for a year and a half.
In a sense, it is also a historical document. Because in this vision memorandum the museum group formulates a joint vision for the very first time and sets outlines together. Urgent questions are asked and answered. Questions such as: ‘How do we ensure that museums continue to contribute to society in a sustainable way? How can we profile ourselves together and at the same time strengthen our identity? What binds us as museums? What makes us strong as a collective? What common goals will we focus on in the coming years and what investments are needed to achieve them? “
