About Us

SEAMS is a non-profit social enterprise that aims to 'unlock' the meanings of cultural heritage objects and places, and then share this with the public in creative, critical, and engaging ways.

SEAMS was founded in 2016 by Australian and Indonesian museum/heritage professionals and is based in Yogyakarta, Indonesia. At SEAMS, our team is our biggest strength, and we have extensive experience working on museums,  heritage and archives projects in Southeast Asia.
