The Background

Two topics have gained enormous relevance for heritage managers in recent times:

  • Dealing with climate change and its impact on cultural heritage management and
  • Risk management – not least fuelled by the COVID 19 crisis, which poses new urgent challenges for many heritage managers.

Both topics are inconceivable without an interdisciplinary approach, as the expertise of many different disciplines is a prerequisite for successful management.  These two topics and the interdisciplinary approach to them are the subject of a workshop offered in cooperation by Association Culture & Work and the Organization of World Heritage Cities.

Association Culture & Work coordinates the European project “HERITAGE-PRO – Interdisciplinary Training for Professionals of Different Disciplines Towards Sustainable Management and Preservation of Cultural Heritage”. The project is supported by the European ERASMUS+ funding scheme.

HERITAGE-PRO developed a vocational training programme comprising five training modules, guidelines and a training kit designed to sensitise young cultural heritage managers to the different mind-sets of various disciplines, but also to provide practical recommendations for successful interdisciplinary approaches to current challenges.

The Workshop

The training takes place online on two consecutive half days. It is designed to be interactive and allows participants to contribute their own experiences and engage in direct exchange with colleagues.

Dates: 4 and 5 May 2021, 2 – 5 PM (Central Europen Time) each day.

Pre-check: A short session to review and ensure technical requirements will be offered on 3 May 2021, 4 PM (Central Europen Time).

Target groups: cultural heritage managers and connected professions

Deadline for registration: 28 April 2021

A certificate of attendance will be issued upon request.
