Long Live our Heritage project: Let’s meet, explore and photograph our heritage together.

Monuments Fund Aruba (SMFA) is proud to announce that we have received a contribution from the Fonds voor Cultuurparticipatie Netherlands for a wonderful new project!


With this project in collaboration with photographer Monique Anrochte, Aruba Tourism Authority and other Aruban cultural partners, we celebrate extensively that we have preserved our heritage for future generations. We share our pride and passion by organizing events and contests with the emphasis on experiencing culture, history and (tangible and intangible) heritage.

To kick off the project we will organize three instameets. An instameet is a festive meeting between (smartphone) photographers who explore an area or subject. They capture and share their adventures with photos and stories on Instagram.

Are you or do you know someone with an interest in heritage and photography, then you can join the instameets by Signing up:   Long Live Heritage

The Instameets will be on 14yh, 17th and 19th of August 2023. During the first Instameet we will explore Historic Rancho and The National Archaeological Museum of Aruba. For the second Instameet we will visit the sunrise city of San Nicolas and the Last Instameet we will explore other monuments on the Island.
