The MAS realises its mission to be a pioneering museum of global connectedness not alone, but together with many partners. This collaboration turns the MAS collection into a shared heritage: from collecting heritage to informing about it, from studying the collections to caring for them. Communities and individuals as well as museum and academic partners contribute to the MAS stories. Cooperation takes place on a local, national and international level. For each project, partners complement each other's knowledge and talents.



Altar of Antwerp

Since 2012, the Mestizo Arts Platform (MAP) collective has been maintaining and renewing the Altar of Antwerp: a participatory installation that invites us to reflect on the meaning of 'what we have lost' in the city. This has been a part of the MAS' permanent collection since 2017.
