Welcome to the Culture in Crisis Portal

This free digital resource is a demonstration of the V&A’s ongoing commitment to protecting the world’s cultural heritage and supporting communities that suffer cultural loss, whether through conflict, criminal acts or natural disaster. The Culture in Crisis Programme brings together those with a shared interest in protecting cultural heritage, providing a forum for sharing information, inspiring and supporting action and raising public awareness.

With your support the Culture in Crisis Portal will become the world’s largest and most accessible database of cultural heritage preservation projects. It enables its users to quickly and easily register their preservation projects, as well as searching for those already in existence.

Together we can learn from each other, share experiences and work to protect the world’s cultural heritage.

To do this, we need your help.
