Ecological and social sustainability

The MSK participates in the Voka Charter for Sustainable Entrepreneurship (VCDO). Voka helps the museum to formulate tangible objectives for its operations: from printing and circular exhibition furniture to energy savings, social programmes and staff wellbeing. The MSK intends to take ever more concrete steps to inspire the public towards an environmentally and socially sustainable society.

Green Key

The MSK is the first museum in Flanders to receive the international 'Green Key' label, an additional confirmation of the efforts made around sustainability.


VCDO: a charter for a sustainable future

In 2020, the MSK became the first museum to subscribe to the VOKA Charter for Sustainable Enterprise (VCDO). Through a concrete action plan, the museum aims to reduce its ecological footprint and inspire the public towards a sustainable society.

Visit the museum with Enchanté

For some people, a museum visit is not financially feasible and the threshold for culture is therefore very high. Thanks to our partnership with Enchanté VZW, you can donate tickets for a postponed visit.

Artistic green on the MSK's doorstep

Since spring 2022, you will find a series of artfully inspired green spaces along the museum building. The lawn was replaced by more varied vegetation, with shrubs and perennials that appear in the paintings.


UiTPAS: an extra set of advantages

Holders of an 'UiTPAS regio Gent' are entitled to discounts and exchange benefits at the MSK. With an 'UiTPAS regio Gent' at social rate, you can even visit the entire museum for just a few euros.


MSK joins #sogetinformed!

In 2021, a red line was installed on the facade of the MSK at a height of 2 metres. In doing so, the museum draws attention to rising sea levels. The action was part of a broader campaign in cultural locations throughout Belgium.

MSK en Refu Interim

Sinds kort werkt het MSK samen met Refu Interim voor evenementen als de Late Donderdagen. Refu Interim is geen echt interimkantoor maar gaat op zoek naar vrijwilligerswerk voor mensen die nieuw zijn in België. Het biedt hen de kans om nieuwe mensen te ontmoeten, Nederlands te oefenen en organisaties als het MSK te leren kennen.
