Ron Santing, Advisor International Heritage Cooperation

Cultural heritage contributes to mutual understanding and historical awareness. This is of particular interest where the history of the Netherlands is intertwined with the history of other countries, especially when these stories are complex. Working with organisations from these countries is a perfect way to tell these inspiring stories. Through cooperation and dialogue, and based on reciprocity and equality, different perspectives and new discoveries can get the attention they deserve. As a programme advisor for the International Heritage Programme at DutchCulture, I am glad to be able to contribute to unravelling these fascinating stories and perspectives.

Before joining DutchCulture, I worked in the field of international cultural cooperation for many years. I was a cultural policy officer at the Netherlands Consulate General in São Paulo, where I dedicated my efforts to stimulating and intensifying cultural exchange between Brazil and the Netherlands. Before that, I made a documentary on the 2014 World Cup and studied journalism (MA) and political science with a minor in history (MA) at Leiden University.
