The Espace René Carcan, in partnership with the King Baudouin Foundation, is presenting a series of works submitted by candidates for the 2014 International René Carcan Prize for Printmaking. No less than 90 engravings will be on show at the BELvue Museum until 22 March 2015.

The Iles de la Semois Fund has started conservation and restoration work on three islands in the River Semois. The work is needed in order to maintain the landscape, historic and natural history value of the sites.

On December 3, 2014, the King Baudouin Foundation’s Heritage Fund was delighted to welcome Corinne Boulangier, Director of La Première (RTBF), and Michel Moortgat, CEO Duvel-Moortgat NV, to succeed Thomas Leysen in the fund’s presidency.
