INTERNATIONAL MULTICULTURAL EXHIBITION OPENS AT FORTJESUS
WORLD HERITAGE SITE
his exhibition is as a result of partnership between Centre for Heritage Development in Africa CHDA, Newcastle University, Hainan China and IWOKRAMA of Guyana with generous sponsorship from En-compass. The exhibition takes once month before making its way to China.
En-compass is a European Commission-funded project involving communities from four regions across four continents, including China, England, Guyana and Kenya, working together to identify and safeguard threatened heritage resources. Despite its global dimensions, the project is very much a ‘grassroots’ initiative which aims ultimately to improve “access to local culture and to protect and promote cultural diversity, especially cultural heritage in imminent danger”.
