Gedeeld Caribisch erfgoed; gedeelde toekomst?
On the 25th of November the Museon in The Hague hosted the symposium "Gedeeld Caribisch erfgoed; gedeelde toekomst?" [Shared Caribbean heritage; shared future?]. Corinne Hofman, Tibisay Sankatsing Nava, and partners Suzy Boekhoudt (NAMA) and Fred van Keulen (SECAR) discussed their work in the Caribbean.
Tibisay talked about her collaborative work with many partners in the Caribbean to co-create the Caribbean Ties exhibition. Fred discussed his public outreach work with SECAR on St. Eustatius, the challenges he faces, and plans for future co-creative research with the local community on the island. Suzy presented about her work at the National Archaeological Museum Aruba, their challenges, and the succesful reopening of the museum.
Finally, Corinne Hofman was part of the closing panel discussions, wherein the need to integrate Caribbean history in education in The Netherlands played a large role.
A visit to the Caribbean Ties exhibition hosted by the Museon was also part of the program. Below are some photos!
