Syrian Heritage Initiative

The six projects of the Syrian Heritage Initiative are all devoted to Syria’s unique material and immaterial cultural heritage. Their research and archival efforts focus in different ways on documenting and making available a variety of materials.

The aim is to provide a basis for reconstruction as well as to build a participatory platform. At the Museums + Heritage Awards in London in May, the Syrian Heritage Initiative of the Museum für Islamische Kunst was singled out for special recognition in the International Award category. The project ‘Multaka’ has received three further national awards. The projects are led by the director of the Museum für Islamische Kunst, Professor Stefan Weber.
