Sharing Heritage Expertise No.13, October 2020

Welcome to the fall 2020 edition of our Sharing Heritage expertise newsletter! The Covid-19 pandemic continues to affect the lives of individuals and organisations around the world, and the Shared Cultural Heritage programme of the Cultural Heritage Agency of the Netherlands (RCE) is no exception. For a programme that rests on international cooperation and knowledge exchange, travel restrictions constitute a significant challenge. Yet with creativity and flexibility from all sides, the RCE has been experimenting with different solutions: see for instance, the case of the Urban Heritage Strategies training which took place online this summer. In this newsletter, the feature article presents a good practice developed in the context of a collaboration with Indonesia on shared difficult heritage. Our partner in the spotlight is The Black Archives, an organisation that plays a central role in ongoing discussions in the Netherlands about the need to produce more inclusive narratives about the past, and especially regarding the colonial past. And as always, you can catch up on our recent projects at the end of the newsletter. Good readings!
