Welcome to this special edition of our newsletter! In the past, each of our organisations has faced challenges, but the current crisis related to the spread of COVID-19 and its impact on the cultural heritage sector around the world are unprecedented. More than ever, the connections between our countries are evident. To foster these connections, especially now we are all dealing with social distancing, cultural lockdown and travel restrictions, we would like to share updates on the situation in the heritage sector in each of our Shared Cultural Heritage partner countries. For this, we have received input from several guest reporters, who we would like to thank for their efforts in these hectic times. Also, in the Meet our Partner section you can read about how you could contribute to DutchCulture’s Helpdesk COVID-19. In July, we will return with a regular newsletter. Until then: keep well and stay safe.
