studioMilou collective

What we do

studioMilou Collective is an integrated heritage services consultancy, founded in 2023 by cultural heritage programme specialist, Suzanne Ogge Milou. We provide the following core services:

  • Developing content for and delivering capacity-building support at national and regional levels relating to the UNESCO 2003 Convention for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage (2003 Convention);
  • Researching, developing and drafting projects for funding applications, with diverse stakeholders;
  • Advising on participatory approaches to safeguarding living heritage in contexts of heritage site conservation; and,
  • Developing exhibition content and design.

Where are we based?

Our physical office is located in studioMilou Singapore, an international heritage architectural firm, for which Suzanne doubles up as Director of its Heritage and Museums Department. Within this structure, Milou Heritage Collective operates independently on non-architectural projects, while drawing on the pool of designers to support the production of documents and to collaborate more specifically on exhibition design and content development projects.


Background and experience

Suzanne brings over 20 years of experience in diverse areas of cultural heritage management and capacity-building, with a core specialisation in the safeguarding of living heritage and museum development.

After commencing her career in Australia as a researcher and social anthropologist for indigenous land claims, Suzanne worked with the UNESCO’s Culture Programmes in Paris from 1999 to 2009. During this period, she conceived, developed and managed operational projects for the safeguarding of living heritage, the conservation of built heritage and museum in Asia, Europe, and the Arab States.

Since 2009, Suzanne has been the Director of Heritage Projects and Museums in the Singapore-based architectural firm, studioMilou, while working as an Accredited Trainer for the UNESCO 2003 Convention for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Heritage and advising on the preparation of nominations and International Assistance Requests to this Convention.
