Our mission

This heritage is managed by many different people and organisations and is not clearly visible to everyone. Erfgoed Gelderland aims to improve the visibility and quality of our heritage. As part of a partnership of heritage organisations, we work for and together with members who are concerned about this heritage: together we are giving the past a future. The expertise of our staff is available to anyone who recognises the importance of holding onto our heritage, collections and stories and making them visible. Erfgoed Gelderland is a source of knowledge and cohesion in this area, ensuring heritage remains firmly on the map.


Erfgoed Gelderland works as part of a close network of more than 200 heritage organisations and helps to strengthen the position of heritage in a broad sense by encouraging knowledge sharing, responding to trends and developments, and initiating supraregional and multidisciplinary partnerships.
