Welcome to the web site of Quiosq, a new company from the Netherlands devoted to making European heritage projects possible.
A quiosque is a integral part of public life on the streets of Lisbon; a communal place where people gather to purchase a multitude of items, from sandwiches newspapers. But also a place where they relax, sit down with a cup of coffee, talk, and observe their surroundings. In a sense, it is a distribution point of information and experiences, facilitating the human capacity to connect, share and feel at home. The sextagonal or octagonal building not only offers customers the opportunity to talk to the proprietor, but also to witness and learn from each other.
The purpose of our Dutch company Quiosq is similar. We are rooted in the disciplines of geography, history and museology, and work to connect objects, memories, identities and places in heritage projects. We are three heritage professionals who share their extensive knowledge of the museum and heritage sector.
