Our Shared Cultural Heritage (OSCH) experiments with new ways for museums and heritage sector to work better for young people. The project is led by people aged 11-25 and looks at how these sectors can become more relevant, engaging and accessible spaces to explore and connect with others to create new opportunities for young people. The project is managed by the British Council, in partnership with Glasgow Life Museum, Manchester Museum, with support from UK Youth. OSCH works in collaboration with museums and heritage organisations in Bangladesh, India and Pakistan focusing on projects within each region and collaboratively across regions. OSCH is funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund’s Kick the Dust programme in the UK and by the British Council across South Asia to support international collaborations.
