Being in place
(a feeling/an experience of space)
The social construction of heritage arises from the experience of
“being in place”. Being part of a society, part of a social cohesion,
can be lived and experienced through different means and acts.
Being in Place is a negotiation process with one another about safeguarding the common ground we as a society build on our values and eventually create an identity and belonging. All this is channelled and coined by intentions of heritage, and understanding heritage is fundamental to human society and what it means to be human.
