Heritage on the Move
For the coming years LeidenGlobal will structure its activities around a common theme as a leading criteria for organising activities and actions. The central theme for 2017-2018 is Heritage on the Move: within the present cultural, social and political context as well heritage and migration are subjects that cannot be avoided. People and their things move around. Often they are forced by political turbulences, but most migration has other incentives. Economic reasons to migrate or to move temporarily are also important. This broad scope of issues related to migration will be reflected in the LeidenGlobal programme for the next two years. This leading theme is chosen by all partners as a common criteria for organising their LeidenGlobal activities, supporting and stimulating the production of output (such as articles, books, films, exhibitions, etc.) and for other activities.
