Heritage and Interculture
Since 2005, through the launch of the “Heritage and Interculture” programme, Fondazione Ismu has been placing a new emphasis on the potential contribution of heritage institutions in promoting intercultural exchange and understanding.
To this end, the Foundation has:
- created the website “Heritage and Interculture” (patrimonioeintercultura.ismu.org – English version available), which over the years has become a unique observatory on intercultural education policies and practices developed by Italian museums and heritage sites
- promoted groundbreaking working practices through training and action-research courses, publications, seminars and conferences, joint planning and running of intercultural projects in partnership with museum institutions, and the open call for young artists and cultural institutions “Art, Heritage and Human Rights”, in collaboration with the association Connecting Culture (since 2010).
