Nordic National Museums Strengthening Arctic Heritage


Publish date
Nordic national cultural history museums are linked with Arctic societies due to the shared heritage of substantial museum collections. We share concerns to re-vitalize, preserve and exchange knowledge on this heritage. Thanks to a grant from NMR’s The Nordic region and its neighbors to the west the National Museum (DK) in partnership with the Museum of Cultural History (NO) in 2017-19 successfully executed the project Arctic heritage in Nordic museums. Strengthening Arctic efforts in Nordic national museums. This volume presents recommendations within the project’s three major fields:1) Intensified collaboration on digital strategies and heritage perspectives with Canadian Inuit organizations,2) a comprehensive and critical analysis of digital databases of cultural institutions in the ABM sector,3) the constitution of a feasible and sustainable Nordic Cross-Arctic Museum Network.
