Policy documents often state that one of the most important tasks of heritage institutions is to support the shaping of identity. However, how does this work in a world that is more and more characterized by migration, globalization and internet-based communication? How can we work with our collections and archives that to a high degree relate to geographical places, on an individual, local, regional and national level?
NCK’s spring conference 2018 shed light on the meaning of place-bound heritage for individual self-understanding and for social cohesion. We will touch on questions about how cultural heritage can be used in order to shape understanding and inclusion through place(s), but also about how the absence of representation can be excluding and marginalizing.
