The Supervisory Board has a retirement schedule. Both the management of the Gemeentemuseum and the Supervisory Board comply with the Cultural Governance Code.

Cultural Diversity Code

The Gemeentemuseum is keen to comply to the greatest possible extent with the Cultural Diversity Code. It has been investing for some time in the Programme and Public pillars of the code, setting up a range of projects, including its Wonderkamers. The Ministry of Education, Culture and Science has accorded its Stadsdelenproject Cultural Diversity Code best practice status. One of the Museum’s goals when filling vacancies is to achieve a culturally diverse staff profile. Internships are arranged in collaboration with ROC Mondriaan vocational college. There is currently a vacancy on the Supervisory Board, and a candidate who suits this profile is currently being sought.

Multiyear policy plan

Every four years Gemeentemuseum Den Haag presents a multiyear plan setting out its multiyear policy on exhibitions, the collection, and educational and commercial activities. This policy plan also serves as the basis for its four-year Arts Plan Grant (Kunstenplansubsidie) application to The Hague City Council.

Collection Plan

Gemeentemuseum Den Haag administers a superb municipal collection on behalf of The Hague City Council. Every four years it draws up a Collection Plan in accordance with the guidelines of the Netherlands Institute for Cultural Heritage (ICN) and Erfgoedhuis Zuid-Holland.
