Our point of departure is the vision that cultural heritage is closely connected to the way in which people wish to perceive themselves and desire to structure their living environment. By choosing, cherishing and sharing heritage, people design a future in which they can find a place together with – or facing – others. Understanding how people can provide room for polyphony and inclusivity in a rapidly changing world is a considerable challenge.

Authoritative knowledge centre
Through the activities of our Research Group the Reinwardt Academy realizes its ambition to become an authoritative (inter)national knowledge centre in the field of cultural heritage, where education, research and cultural entrepreneurship come together and mutually reinforce one another.
