Sharing Heritage Expertise, newsletter No. 12, 2020

Welcome to the Summer edition of our newsletter! After our special COVID-19 issue, we return with a regular newsletter, during a time when for many of us, life is still far from going back to normal. In many countries, the cultural heritage sector has been and will continue to be affected by the current crisis. And more recently, we have witnessed how heritage has become entangled in antiracism protests around the world, stimulating heritage professionals to reflect on their own role and responsibility towards such heritage and society at large. In the meantime, the Shared Cultural Heritage Programme of the Cultural Heritage Agency of the Netherlands (RCE) has been looking together with its partners into avenues for collaboration for the upcoming policy period 2021-2024. On our website, you can find the results of the international brainstorm session and the reporton the subsequent live video discussions in which many of you took part. In this newsletter: the feature article shares how the involvement of younger generations has contributed to the sustainable conservation of sounding heritage in Suriname, and has resulted in a good practice in the context of a collaboration between this country and the Netherlands. Our partner in the spotlight is Schipper Bosch and we finish off with an overview of our recent projects and activities. Good readings and stay safe!
