Core values, such as diversity, inclusivity, accessibility and multi-vocality are the basis for the improvement in visibility, usability and conservation of our heritage.
The two-day masterclass Inconvenient Heritage, a collaboration between Maastricht University and Radboud University, explores the way in which heritage-professionals can respond to the current discussions and the changing policy on heritage collections in a colonial context.
The first module gives an insight in the latest developments; the second module focuses on the possibilities, chances and risks in the investigation on finding traces in the collections. We discuss how to translate international and national developments into a practical strategy for our own collections. Networking is one of the main objectives of this masterclass.

Module one takes place on March 9th 2023, from 11.00-16.30.
Module two takes place on April 6th 2023, from 12.30-16.30
