Collections of Ghent

What connects the citizens of Ghent on a cultural level? How and where can we collect this? And how can we best access this collection?

Together with the citizens of Ghent and with European support we are putting together a digital collection of our Ghentian heritage. This way, we want to analyse what it is exactly that connects us. As a next step, this collection will be exposed in the new wing of the Design Museum in Ghent, where it will get its own 'white space' - a physically, digitally and highly technological interactive room.

But first things first: digitize our collection.
