Shared Cultural Heritage
The former Dutch presence in many overseas countries left cultural traces. Examples can be found in Indonesia, India, Surinam, Sri Lanka, South Africa, Ghana, Brazil, the Caribbean islands, the United States, Australia and Russia.
This shared cultural heritage is a theme with widespread branches, both geographically and in terms of content. A large diversity of fields of expertise within ICOMOS Netherlands but also within ICOMOS International makes the ICOMOS organization an interesting partner in knowledge exchange and advice on this broad topic.
In order to make optimal use of this ICOMOS network and to cooperate with partner organizations active in the field of shared cultural heritage, ICOMOS Netherlands has identified Shared Cultural Heritage as one of the focus themes for the coming years.
