The Santo Domingo Centre of Excellence for Latin American Research, based at the British Museum: 


  • Experiments with the ways that museum research is conducted and disturbs traditional representations of Latin America.


  • Supports cultural heritage initiatives that are developed in Latin America and aims to create a network of communities that are interested in the heritage and material culture of the region.  


  • Gives Latin American collections greater visibility and seeks to broaden the audiences who typically engage with Latin American contemporary and archaeological material.
