Promoters and partners

A partnership approach

The Martinique Heritage Database exists to bring together local, national and international stakeholders around the General Council of Martinique, the project leader. Resources on the history and heritage of Martinique have been dispersed as a result of the turbulent colonial history of the island. Numerous stakeholders including, in Martinique, the archaeology departments, various archives, different inventories, libraries and museums have responsibility for these resources.

An initial partnership was set up in Martinique between the General Council and the Department for Cultural Affairs, because of the complementary nature of their activities and resources.
