A Cultural Heritage Preservation Platform
V&A has launched an innovative new global platform allowing individuals and organisations behind key cultural heritage projects to connect with potential sponsors, collaborators and experts. Created as part of the V&A’s Culture in Crisis programme, the platform is the first of its kind and is completely free to access and post about projects. The Culture in Crisis Portal will become the world’s largest and most accessible database of cultural heritage preservation. The Portal enables users to quickly and easily register their preservation projects using a desktop or mobile device, making them accessible and searchable worldwide. When exploring the database for existing projects, the rapid intelligent search feature allows the user to search and filter by project type, location and other specific criteria; revealing synergies between projects and offering opportunities to explore future collaborative projects.
This free digital resource is a demonstration of the V&A’s ongoing commitment to protecting the world’s cultural heritage and supporting communities that suffer cultural loss, whether through conflict, criminal acts or natural disasters. The Culture in Crisis Programme brings together those with a shared interest in protecting cultural heritage, providing a forum for sharing information, inspiring and supporting action and raising public awareness. With your support, the Culture in Crisis Portal will become the world’s largest and most accessible database of cultural heritage preservation projects. It enables its users to quickly and easily register their preservation projects, as well as search for those already in existence. Together we can learn from each other, share experiences and work to protect the world’s cultural heritage.
