regional and national perspectives on cultural heritage to be replaced by ‘Eurocentric’ perspectives. Rather, the goal is to deconstruct unilinear interpretations for the bene t of ‘shared histories’ that are closely linked to many objects. In this sense, it is also possible for the perspective to transcend the historical space of Europe.
Toolkit 2: Integrating multicultural Europe.
Museums as Social Arenas
In comparing the museum to a Social Arena, the EMEE project puts for- ward the view that the concept of Change of Perspective needs to take into consideration the visitor’s perspective on the local cultural heritage, if a museum is to become a vibrant social space where cultural identi- ties in a multicultural society can be discussed and negotiated. Thus, the goal is for the negotiation of cultural heritage to yield new insights into the discussion of those issues in today’s society, that are on our minds – and, vice versa, the goals is to put a new complexion on museum objects. In this context, not only the strengthening of European dimen- sions of perceiving cultural heritage is emphasized, but also the intimate links between European (and global) aspects and local interrelationships. The authors of this Toolkit conceptualized the volume as a handy tool for daily use by museum staff and museum enthusiasts, but also as a ‘quick  x’ whenever fresh inspiration is urgently needed.
