The Comparative Heritage (CHERIT) project identifies and engages the complex and multiple ways by which individuals– in relation to community– invent, innovate/inherit, and (re)-/(de-)claim(s) “heritage” as a historical shifting gaze in negotiating power’s constancy and/or impermanence.
The primary mission of CHERIT is to capture and document the various forms and categories of “heritage” using modern media techniques. Through conscious engagement of people in relations to what they do with “heritage,” the CHERIT project promotes critical reflection among individuals and communities on the formation, deployment, and utilization of heritage in psychosocial and political dynamics. It seeks pioneering, development and promotion of projects which have the ability to foster peaceful coexistence, community, and networks of collaborations among various peoples in ways that are uniquely respectful and healthy.
CHERI develops and promotes projects which pioneer the ability to foster peaceful interpersonal and communal coexistence. Projects facilitate networking and collaborations among diverse peoples in ways that are uniquely respectful and healthy–the through critical lenses of its projects.
