Music and culture

Promoting music and the performing arts.

Increasing numbers of philanthropists and music lovers are contacting the King Baudouin Foundation. Whether their wish is to support young musicians or talented artisans, or to contribute to the restoration of musical instruments, we help them to set up their culture or music project, in partnership with others in the sector.

Our activities

  • facilitating philanthropy and providing support for those currently in the cultural sector
  • providing support for talented young musicians and music schools
  • and acquiring musical instruments of historical value and contributing to restoring and promoting them.

Music and culture is part of the programme Heritage and culture
