The Future Heritage Lab sees heritage as a ‘workspace’, where people work freely with objects, stories and associations. It wants to increase the cultural impact of collections and relate those to their social context.
The Lab collaborates since years with artists, large and small museums and archives, and develops interactive installations, applications and methods with them to change the perception of heritage and to update its meaning. We do this in an open, innovative lab setting. The aim is to create perspective for action with makers, users and visitors and to give heritage a role in enforcing identity, social cohesion and creativity.
Future Heritage Lab is made possible by a subsidy from the Creative Industries Fund NL.
