Contemporary Take, Beyond Cultural Heritage Programme


Congratulations to our new partners selected for the 2017 Contemporary Take, Beyond Cultural Heritage Programme joint call!

The Contemporary Take, Beyond Cultural Heritage Programme joint call welcomed project proposals that enable young people to engage with diverse cultural heritage within their own context and/or across six countries of South Asia (i.e. Afghanistan, Bangladesh, India, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka) through contemporary artistic and new media interventions. The Prince Claus Fund and the British Council believe that both heritage and arts have the potential to create dialogue between communities and foster mutual understanding, and that new media opens up further opportunities for such dialogues to become inclusive and immersive experiences.
