Our Shared Cultural Heritage (OSCH) is a three-year programme that explores the shared cultures and histories of the UK and South Asia.
We hope that this youth-led project will:
- enable museums and youth and heritage organisations to become better places for young people to explore identity and connect with others
- change how museums and heritage organisations engage with and represent South Asian heritage
- open up new opportunities for young people, including new routes into careers in the heritage sector
The programme is funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund's Kick the Dust programme.
OSCH is designed to amplify the voices of young people of South Asian descent, but activities are open to a wide cross-section of young people aged 11-25 years old. Our aim is to support youth communities through the sharing of histories and new experiences to explore belonging and identity together.
