As an expression of their commitment to non-formal adult education, the Ministry of Culture of the Flemish community of Belgium embarked during the 1970s on a series of promotional campaigns to support organisations active in non-formal adult education.
DIVA is a partnership between four departments (Education, Employment, Economy and Culture) of the Ministry of the Flemish Community.

 WENR, January/February 2004: Belgium Printer friendly version
Prior to the Bologna Declaration, the Flemish higher education system was governed by the Act on Universities (1991) and the Hogescholen Act (1994), both of which upheld the traditional ternary structure of Flemish education.
The Act on the Structure of Higher Education in the Flemish Community, which was passed in April 2003, was the first piece of legislation to introduce Bologna-related reforms.
In the French-speaking community of Belgium, the structure of university education is governed by a September 1994 decree and the structure of non-university higher education by an August 1995 decree.

 Art Education: Free oil Painting Lesson.
Very many paintings in which artists did not use the classic Flemish Masters' techniques of 7 layers, did not pass the test of time.
I was classically trained and have dedicated most of my time to studying and emulating the 7 layer techniques of the 16th century Flemish Masters such as Rubens, Van Duke and Snyders, which is practiced by very few artists today as it is no longer taught in art schools.
The energy which we receive from old paintings in museums, like ghosts in old castles with old paintings, is related to this magic figure.

 Flemish far right sets its sights on Brussels , by Serge Govaert
By way of reassurance, the Flemish nationalist party proposed a "contract" whose most surprising clause was the maintenance of French speakers’ rights in matters of culture, language use and education.
But if the Flemish parties of the outgoing coalition lost support - which is perfectly conceivable - the Vlaams Blok would only have to take 10,000 votes from the French-speaking parties and 5,000 from the CVP, SP or Volkunie in order to win half the Flemish seats in the Brussels parliament.
If it tones down its Flemish nationalist rhetoric and concentrates on issues traditionally favoured by the far right, it can win votes among those sections of the Brussels population that are bearing the brunt of the economic crisis.

 Dutch in Flanders
Between 1814 and 1830 there was a short-lived reunification under king William I. At that time (from 1823) Flemish was the compulsory language of government, education and law, but the Belgian revolution of 1830 reinstated linguistic freedom for the citizens, which in effect meant a restoration of French as the main language.
Flemish has a noticeable tendency to adapt foreign words into Dutch speech patterns; for example in the words "record" and "cabaret" the final letter is pronounced, and in the word "passagier" Flemings use a "soft g".
Flemish immigrants had certainly brought some southern elements with them in the previous century, but wars and conquests gradually led to a weakening of the former cultural and economical dominance of Flanders.
