Music and the performing arts contribute to the rich culture that has been a hallmark of Flanders and Brussels both historically and today. CEMPER — Centre for Music and Performing Arts Heritage in Flanders, Belgium — aims to preserve and pass on the traces of that culture. To give it a future. We do this because we’re convinced that this heritage is valuable: it shapes the memory of music and the performing arts and contributes to the artistic and cultural diversity of today’s society. 

What do we do?

CEMPER advises, supports and guides anyone who comes into contact with the heritage of music or the performing arts: from amateurs to professionals, hobbyists to academics, and heirs to collectors. Day after day, we work with you to find the best possible answers to your questions. To achieve this, we draw on studies and best practices to help us combine know-how from Belgium and abroad in practical guides, online platforms and customized advice. 

Who are we?

CEMPER was set up in 2019 through the merger of Resonant (centre of expertise for musical heritage) and Het Firmament (centre of expertise for performing arts heritage). Our staff are seasoned experts with a wide-ranging network.
