Heritage on the Move is a photo exhibition produced by LeidenGlobal. The twelve photographs on display form a selection of work provided by scholars of LeidenGlobal partners, reflecting their vision on the theme ‘Heritage on the Move’.
The photo exhibition itself will be ‘On the Move’. From 2017 until 2019 it will travel around Leiden, along different faculties and institutes connected to Leiden University and the LeidenGlobal partners, but also passing by places that attract a broader public.
About the theme
Today perhaps more than ever before, heritage and migration go hand in hand. For many reasons, people move around the world, and so does their heritage.
Cultural Heritage is often understood in terms of local identity alone, but in fact it travels around the world, and it has done so since times immemorial. In this process people may change, but so does their cultural heritage on the move.
