Funds and projects

The Brussels tapestry Le Jugement Dernier from the Worcester Art Museum (USA) has been able to be restored thanks to the René and Karin Jonckheere Fund. The tapestry is on show at the MRAH before being returned to Worcester.

In 2015, the Hubert Schoonbroodt Fund will provide financial support for talented young organists to develop their international careers.

The aim of this fund is to safeguard works of art that show the European dimension of Brussels. The fund has supported, for instance, research and restoration of the Passion Reredos, by Güstrow, one of the most prestigious Brabant altarpieces made in the 16th century. Closing date for the call: 30 April 2015.

The InBev-Baillet Latour Fund supports initiatives that safeguard important elements of moveable Belgian heritage. Thanks to the fund, a major work by Hendrick Goltzius has been able to be restored. Calls for 2015 applications to the fund close on 19 May 2015.

L’Homme de Tollund (Tollund Man), a magnificent portfolio by Hugo Claus and Serge Vandercam, has recently enriched the Michel Wittock Fund. The Bibliotheca Wittockiana was able to purchase the work with help from the Heritage Fund.
