This phase of our call for submissions is now closed. If you have missed the deadline, follow our announcements and be ready to submit at a later phase that we may launch to complement the inventory. 

If you have not already submitted your choice of “items of significant heritage interest” or have spotted additional ones- please do so by the deadline.

“HERITAGE QUEST” is a campaign that calls on the public (You!) to help identify Sarawak items of significant heritage Interest which should be highlighted for protection and conservation.

Is there an old building that you treasure, a monument, historical site, landmark, traditional craft, trade or art? Or even an iconic tree or garden?

Let us know.

HOW? Simply:

  • GET OR TAKE A PICTURE
  • WRITE SOME WORDS ON WHAT AND WHERE IT IS, AND WHY YOU SEE IT IMPORTANT TO BE PROTECTED AND CONSERVED.
  • SEND that to us with the mention “Heritage Quest” by one of the following means:
                                                     or mail to SHS, 3rd Floor, Sublot 16, Eastmoore Centre, Jalan Rock, 93200 Kuching

SHS will aggregate, analyse, screen the submissions, then publish a list for the attention of government and other heritage management stakeholders and lobby for the measures required to protect the items concerned.

Help us save our cultural heritage!

WE COUNT ON YOU.

This initiative aims at complementing the list of cultural heritage items that are already gazetted by the Government as heritage buildings, sites or monuments and will support lobbying by SHS for additional listing/gazetting of such items.  For reference, the current list of Government gazetted assets is posted here on the SHS website.
