Digital Heritage Network manifesto

Being part of the Digital Heritage Network means working according to certain principles and a shift from “institutional thinking” to “network thinking”. A growing number of organisations from the heritage sector support this approach and believe that we can only get the most out of digital heritage if we work together. They therefore sign the manifesto [PDF] of the Digital Heritage Network.

A growing movement

The manifesto was published on 1 October 2018. Ten provincial heritage institutions were the first to sign it that day. They were soon followed by dozens of other organisations from the heritage field.

On 1 October 2018, the first ten institutions signed the new manifesto.
