On 1 January 2009 PACE (Papua Heritage Foundation) created a separate foundation called ‘Collectie Pace’ (Collection of Papua Heritage) to conserve and manage its ethnographic artefacts. These cultural goods will be held in storage at relevant conservation institutions. When the time comes, Collectie PACE will also be responsible for the repatriation of these artefacts.
ICN: National office for conservation of Art
To manage the collection items, Collectie Pace makes use of storage space made available by ‘Instituut Collectie Nederland’ (ICN). This national office is responsible for the care of more than 100.000 art objects which are not currently being displayed in museums and which are owned by the state.
