NAMES Project Netherlands Foundation
The NAMES Project Netherlands is the preserver and promoter of cultural heritage such as the Dutch AIDS Memorial Quilt, which arose out of the desperate need to give form to the loss which AIDS has caused. That there is still an enormous need to commemorate and remember is clear from the continued interest in the digital variant of the Quilt, AIDSmemorial.nl.
