Message from the Chairman

Welcome to the Society of Friends of Belgium!

Under the auspices of His Excellency, the Ambassador of Belgium in Washington and the Consul General of Belgium in New York, the Society of Friends of Belgium was created in 2006 to identify, support and stimulate Belgo-American cultural initiatives in the United States.

As a Belgian living abroad for the last three decades, I am constantly touched through my travels by the deep impact that Belgium and Belgian artists have had on the world’s cultural heritage. Even today, one can wander through galleries, museums, opera houses, and concert halls around the world to find some of the most renowned and –yes– some of the most promising Belgian artists of our time. Exposing the American public to the richness of Belgian culture promotes the image of Belgium in the U.S. and enhances the mutual understanding between the two countries.

Since its inception, the Society of Friends of Belgium has benefited from the support of many corporations and individuals, to whom we are deeply grateful. As we continue to identify and promote multiple events throughout the year, we hope to count on your generosity and in ideas to further fulfill our mission.

I am proud to serve as the first Chairman of the Society and thank you for your interest, for your involvement and for your support.

Sincerely,
François M. de Visscher
Chairman, The Society of Friends of Belgium in America
