Our Shared Cultural Heritage (OSCH) is a youth-led programme that explores the shared cultures and histories of the UK and South Asia.
In partnership with CCD Bangladesh, Department of Visual Studies, University of Karachi, Faiz Foundation Trust, Glasgow Life, Indian Music Experience, Manchester Museum, Museum of Art & Photography Rereeti, State Bank Museum, The Colony, Uronto, UK Youth, Varendra Research Museum and Walled City of Lahore Authority, we are working with 11-25 year olds to create new ways for museums and youth organisations to work together.
This youth-led project aims to:
- 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
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.
