For SWICH - Sharing a World of Inclusion, Creativity and Heritage, ten European partner museums reflect current issues concerning the role of ethnographic museums within an increasingly differentiated European society.

The focus of this EU-cooperation project, co-funded by the Creative Europe programme, lies on central concerns of visionary ethnographic museum practice within the context of a post-migrant society.

In a series of conferences, workshops, residencies and cooperative exhibition formats the museums work on strategies for a future-oriented museum practice.
