Description
El objetivo que se busca es explicar, desde la experiencia profesional (como responsable del Patrimonio Cultural de un municipio), pero también personal como discapacitado físico, el concepto de “cadena de accesibilidad”, y su aplicación, en contextos patrimoniales y museísticos reales, reconociendo los problemas cotidianos existentes y estableciendo, con pragmatismo y desde la realidad, qué suele ocurrir y cómo se debe intentar afrontar los problemas que vayan surgiendo en el camino.

Partiremos de las distintas definiciones del concepto de “accesibilidad”, deteniéndonos especialmente en el concepto e importancia de la “cadena de accesibilidad”, explicando cuáles son sus elementos fundamentales, su importancia intrínseca, y en qué medida pueden fracasar nuestros proyectos si no se cumple dicha cadena en todos sus eslabones. Posteriormente, con los conceptos aclarados se pasa a exponer la puesta en práctica de los mismos en algunas actuaciones reales en donde se haya intervenido para la instalación de infraestructuras museísticas en espacios patrimoniales protegidos. Se termina por exponer los pros y los contras de dichas actuaciones, estableciendo un decálogo de medidas a desarrollar para intentar garantizar el éxito de las mismas.

La conclusión general del Taller parte de la idea de la necesidad de llevar a cabo actuaciones que cumplan con el concepto y exigencias de la cadena de accesibilidad, pero se exponen casos concretos en donde por diversas circunstancia se aprecia la dificultad que existe, a diario, con su real aplicación. En cualquier caso, se establecen las pautas que se consideran necesarias para que, si se cumplen, puedan llevarse a cabo con éxito dichas actuaciones.

Description
Todos nuestros países están expuestos a fenómenos naturales o accidentes, muchos de ellos impredecibles. Vemos con regularidad alguna noticia sobre la destrucción y los estragos que algún desastre desató o el simple hecho de encontrarnos en una zona de riesgo sísmico, tectónico, de huracanes, etc.

Estos eventos son imposibles de eliminar, lo que si es posible, es estar preparados ante su aparición y reducir la pérdida total o parcial de edificio y colecciones y proteger al personal y los visitantes.

Solo las emergencias que se salen de las manos se convierten en desastre, lo cual nos indica que todos los desastres son emergencias, si estos no pueden ser rápida y efectivamente atendidos, se transformarán en tragedias.

Por lo tanto es obligación de cada institución patrimonial, el contar con un efectivo plan de emergencias donde se guíe a todo el personal, a ejecutar acciones asertivas y rápidas con el objetivo de evitar y minimizar, los daños que pudieran recibir las personas, como prioridad y los bienes custodiados en un segundo momento.

Con el presente curso el ILAM pretende brindar asesoría en la construcción de un plan general de emergencias y bibliografía especializada en el tema, de manera que los participantes puedan seguir ampliando y mejorando el documento final que se generará al interno del mismo.

Description
HMO Training Heritage Leaders
Autumn 2017
Executive Leadership Development in Heritage Management Workshop Series
BRAND NEW THINKING: BRANDING HERITAGE ASSETS
13-15 October, 2017
Location: Athens

What role does brand play in the management of heritage?
The concept of ‘heritage’ is a slippery thing, knotted together with questions of power, identity and control. The idea of ‘brand’ similarly provokes vociferous debate, either responsible for a reductionist Disneyfication of culture or an essential and powerful tool in the 21st century. What happens when these worlds collide?

A 3 day journey to explore the relationship between brand and heritage
If you’re curious, skeptical or converted, come and join us on a 3 day journey that explores these critical questions. Through theoretical presentations, field research and practical exercises, we will work together to interrogate the relationship between brand and heritage. The experience will give you the tools to deconstruct and analyze a brand, build brand direction and strategy and understand how to effectively use brand in heritage management.

The program will be delivered by HMO’s ambassador, the UK company THE SEEKING STATE, a creative consultancy seeking to help clients redefine how we engage with culture. Continue reading…
