HERE: Heritage Reflections took place on Tuesday, May 30 from 1:00 PM – 6:30 PM (Dutch time) at the Neude Library in Utrecht. This afternoon we reflected on the themes of positionality and community building with various players from the heritage field. Together with the audience, we discussed topics such as awareness of your own position and the importance of context and perspective.
Which paths do you take as a heritage professional? How do you use oral history and community archives as a supplement to collective history? And what are the ethical issues surrounding fundraising?
The programme consisted of a plenary part and 5 in-depth sessions for which you can register during the event.
