Alison Heritage, ICCROM, " Tracking Trends in Heritage Conservation"

Högre seminarium

For our next seminar, we are happy to invite Alison Heritage from ICCROM (the International Centre for the Study of the Preservation and Restoration of Cultural Property), to present some current trends in heritage conservation.

The heritage conservation sector is both data rich and data poor. The production of data about heritage is substantial. However, there is an absence of global overview in data terms. This is needed for two main reasons: firstly, to evidence the societal outcomes of heritage conservation, and secondly (from a more internal-to-the-sector perspective) to underpin conservation policy and governance.

This presents an impediment to effective capacity building, and if such data were available (for example with regard to priority needs, capacity deficits and arising challenges) it could substantially facilitate conservation policy and planning. In this regard, the unprecedented changes witnessed in recent years in the availability of digital data and tools raise interesting questions regarding how the heritage sector could make better use of these new possibilities to answer some of these strategic questions.

This presentation will outline some of the work undertaken by ICCROM over the past two years to trace current trends in heritage research and training, and will introduce the Tracking Trends project, which is launched this year as a two-year pilot. This initiative is a preliminary step towards addressing the data gap for cultural heritage conservation, through targeted collection of a select number of key parameters. If successful, a long-term goal is to provide baseline data combined with in-depth analysis to identify trends and emerging issues to support data-informed conservation strategies for heritage throughout the world.
