IN2 understands the importance of cultural heritage and the role it can play to promote social cohesion, particularly in areas recovering from extremist influence.
We protect and promote the diversity of cultural expression to reinforce social cohesion, provide psycho-social support, help build traditional skills, and celebrate ethno-religious plurality.
We promote cultural production and creative industries as part of sustainable economic development and recovery. We strive to stop the looting of cultural artefacts which is often a source of criminal or terrorist finance. Cultural heritage initiatives can rejuvenate domestic, regional and international tourism by developing compelling cultural offerings.
