Nineveh Minecraft at the National Museum of Antiquities
|location||:||Dutch National Museum of Antiquities|
|time||:||from 11:00 till 16:30|
In collaboration with Stichting VALUE, the Prince Claus Fund is organising a ‘Nineveh: Minecraft Event’, a special part of the exhibition Nineveh - Capital of a World Imperium at the Dutch National Museum of Antiquities.
During this event, the public can take part in the Minecraft reconstruction of Nineveh’s buildings and through this playful exercise engage with the threats facing Nineveh’s heritage today. Visit Nineveh: Minecraft Events on 25 November 2017 and 3 March 2018.
Starting 20 October, the Prince Claus Fund’s Cultural Emergency Response programme will be featured during the Dutch National Museum of Antiquities in Leiden: ‘Nineveh - Capital of a World Imperium’ in the section for cultural heritage under threat: ‘Nineveh’s Fragile Heritage’.
The Prince Claus Fund presents a photo-installation in collaboration with the Netherlands Commission at UNESCO, developed by Feddow Claassen and including works by Iraqi archaeologist Faisal Jeber from the Prince Claus Fund’s network. This photo-installation literally shifts the perspective of all visitors walking through this part of the exhibition, thereby providing them with an experience of being at the site of Nineveh as it is today.
