Intro English

IMHP is read by some as 'I'm happy'! Of course I'm fine with that, but officially the letters stand for Intercultural and Heritage Projects. The I that is part of the IMHP logo looks like a key.



The meaning IMHP stands for Intercultural Museum and Heritage Projects. Some might read 'I'm happy'. That's good too!
