The Sesam program facilitates access to the Magritte Museum for all those who are effectively excluded for social, economic or cultural reasons. It opens the doors to people of all ages: they may be homeless or in hostels, immigrants, living in poverty, in literacy programs or socially excluded. Sesame aims to have a positive impact on people at the margins of society and to be a stepping stone towards social integration.
Sesam has other aims too. It wants to demystify the world of museums and culture and to forge local links, tapping into the creativity of the neighbourhood.
To achieve its aims the Sesam program operates outside as well as inside the Museum’s walls: partnerships are formed in order to reach and work with vulnerable people. All sorts of local venues are used. Creative activities take place in socially engaged organizations, in literacy classes, at homework schools. These are linked up to work within the Magritte Museum.
! For the moment this program is only available in French.
