The Nahrein Network


Cultural Heritage Organisation

Dr Rozhen Mohammed-Amin is Nahrein Network co-director and president of non profit organization Cultural Heritage Organisation (CHO). The CHO aims to address the gap in and need for digital cultural heritage research and practice in Iraq through three Work Packages. The first creates and conducts impact assessments of mobile Augmented Reality apps to deliver immersive, emotive and empathetic responses to aspects of Iraq’s ‘difficult’ heritage, from the Mandate-era Serai Building in Sulaimani to the Yazidi genocide of 2017. Second, the “Reconstruct Mesopotamia” virtual (online) annual internship program trains interdisciplinary teams across Iraq in digital cultural heritage reconstruction, preservation and interpretation of their cultural heritage. The third delivers monthly professional development workshops and webinars to cultural heritage professionals and scholars from local museums, libraries, NGOs, and universities.
