The Flemish Art Collection, the nodal point for museum collections, is controlled by recognised museums in Flanders and by experts, acquainted with themes and practices that are relevant for museums.
The Flemish Art Collection strives to be a ‘sustainable’ organisation through permanent improvement upon the museum and community domain, by including economic, environmental and social considerations into the overall activity in an integrated and coherent manner through a systematic approach and by engaging the stakeholders with its activity.
The Flemish Art Collection wants to be an 'open' organisation. They manage a corporate philosophy by which the emphasis lies upon transparency, free access to knowledge and information and cooperative management. The Flemish Art Collection utilises open content, open access, open architecture and open-source codes.
The Flemish Art Collection works within a 'standardised' context so that (inter)national exchange and reuse of knowledge and expertise becomes possible.
The Flemish Art Collection works 'hands-on and result-oriented'. The organisation does not wish to step into the place of museums and museum colleagues, but rather guide and support them in the laying down of effective and efficient results upon which they can further build.
The Flemish Art Collection highly values ‘collaboration and synchronisation’. The organisation permanently seeks partnerships and complementary situations both within and without of the cultural-heritage field, both inside and outside of the subsidised sector.
