“CONCILIARE – Confidently Changing Colonial Heritage” is the latest project of CECS, which obtained the maximum score in the call “HORIZON-CL2-2023-HERITAGE-01 (Research and innovation on cultural heritage and CCIs)”.
The project is composed of 11 institutions in consortium: University of Coimbra (coordination), Université Libre de Bruxelles, Utrecht University, University of Minho, Sapienza University, Centre for War and Contemporary Society/ State Archives, University of Helsinki, The Institute of Social Sciences Ivo Pilar, Centre for Social Studies, Afropean Project and International Council of Museums-Belgium/Wallonia-Brussels.
From the University of Minho/CECS, the team is composed of Rosa Cabecinhas (coordinator), Isabel Macedo, Sheila Khan and Nicoletta Mandolini.
CONCILIARE aims to analyse public perceptions of cultural heritage and proposes to develop studies on how citizens adhere to face or contest ongoing transformations.
The CECS team coordinates the task “Co-creation and dissemination of inclusive decolonial narratives”. This task aims to foster a co-creation process of decolonial narratives in different European cities, namely through public art projects developed in articulation with diverse associations. The impacts of such actions will be analysed through interviews with different audiences and focus groups in schools.
