 Brief description of your activity focus
CRKC is the centre of expertise for religious cultural heritage in Flanders (movable, intangible and immovable)

 Details about Expertise / Competences / Technologies
The Centre for Religious Art and Culture (Centrum voor Religieuze Kunst en Cultuur - CRKC) is the centre of
expertise for religious heritage in Flanders and Brussels. Since 2009 it is recognized as such by the Flemish
government in accordance with the cultural heritage decree of 23 May 2008. In 2012 the Department of
Immovable Religious Heritage was founded by minister Geert Bourgeois within the framework of his report ‘The
future of parish churches in Flanders’. Since that time, the existing operation of the CRKC has been under the
Department of Movable Religious Heritage.

The CRKC collects knowledge and shares expertise about religious material and immaterial culture, supports and
advises heritage managers, enthusiastically promotes an interest in this rich heritage, and advocates for the active
distribution of this valuable information. The CRKC works closely together with religious archives such as KADOC-
KULeuven, the State Archives and the Flemish Heritage Library.

The primary focus of the CRKC lies with the heritage of the catholic church, but the scope of the Centre’s work
encompasses all the recognized religions in Belgium (Roman Catholicism, Protestantism, Anglicanism, Judaism,
Islam, and Orthodox Churches). The Centre’s base of operations is located at the historical Abbey of Park in
Leuven, alongside the Museum for Religious Art and Culture which is managed by CRKC since 2014.
