KADOC-KU Leuven and Museum Dr. Guislain, together with other heritage, (health) care and socio-cultural partners, present the project ‘Heritage of Care – Care for heritage’. The project has a threefold focus: (1) mapping the diverse and valuable, but also endangered heritage of care institutions and organizations in Flanders (Belgium); (2) building expertise about the features, problems and opportunities characterizing care heritage by means of in-depth case studies; (3) developing a digital, interactive and co-creative platform to support care-givers, care-receivers, socio-cultural and heritage institutions and organizations, researches and the general public in the preservation and valorization of the heritage of care.
