Our Mission

To share and explore the elements that make up Sarawak’s unique history and heritage and in doing so inform, enrich and inspire 

To achieve our mission:

  • We preserve, conserve and develop works of historical significance and the heritage of Sarawak.
  • We undertake and participate in community-oriented projects with real and meaningful connections to Sarawak’s tangible and intangible heritage.
  • Our work covers the tangible: physical sites, structures, artefacts, records; and the intangible: educational and outreach programmes as well as encouraging the use of bygone skills.
  • We use these works as a platform to engage, inform and inspire communities in Sarawak and beyond, and encourage responsible care of our world.

Our Philosophy

We believe

  • that the deeper story of the Brooke dynasty in Sarawak will inspire imagination and stimulate thought about its relevance to a wider contemporary world.
  • that sharing this history will connect people and communities through mutual understanding of our personal and collective beginnings.
  • in showing a global audience the significance of Sarawak’s heritage.
  • that engagement with our work will benefit communities through education and experiences which promote personal enrichment and community well-being.
