All cultures seek various ways of expressing themselves in order to solidify group identity but also for political and economic reasons. In the context of unprecedented global mobilities and multi-culturalism the expression of cultural identities has gained heightened importance. However, this poses challenges in how to present diverse cultures. In this presentation I discuss cultural diversity as an important resource for both educational and economic reasons and how multicultural societies are building a new heritage that will become increasingly important.
