VIAA is welcoming Packed and Lukas


Today, Sven Gatz, Flemish minister for Culture, announced that from 2019 onwards, VIAA will take Packed and Lukas under its wings. One of the guidelines in the policy of minister Gatz is stimulating cooperation and coordination, aimed at more strength and less fragmentation in the sector. Within the framework of his vision note on digitisation, the minister also wants to strive for scaling and efficiency gains.

Packed, the Centre of Expertise in Digital heritage, supports heritage and arts organisations in the production, sharing and storage of digital cultural content. Lukas manages digital imagery and the worldwide distribution of Flemish museum and heritage collections. We look forward to joining forces and building a common story from 2019 onwards.
