Inheritage is an international platform for professionals in the field of heritage communications.
It is being developed to meet and inspire one another, to discuss and challenge, to show and to admire examples of heritage communications throughout Europe. It will be fully developed during 2011.
Founding 'fathers' are the European project Portico (a collaboration between the cities of Gent, Chester, Köln, Utrecht and the intitiatief Domplein founded by the INTERREG IV-B NWE) that aims at exploring the spectrum of heritage conservation and communication and the Dutch Odyssee program. The Odyssee program is a project initiated by the NWO (The Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research) and Erfgoed Nederland (The Netherlands Institute for Dutch Heritage) is set up to dig up ‘cold cases’ in archaeological excavation in order to make the results accessible for scientific research and to the wider audience. Creative agency Tinker imagineers that specializes in bringing heritage to life was asked by them to start up the Inheritage platform.
