Este Webinar, presentado en español y portugués, se centrará en la experiencia que han tenido seis panelistas que trabajan con diferentes tipos de patrimonio en Iberoamérica para hacerle frente a la emergencia generada por el COVID-19. Se discutirán los impactos que ha tenido, las soluciones de respuesta que se han podido generar, y las lecciones aprendidas hasta el momento, así como perspectivas a futuro, ante una situación que continúa evolucionando, y en donde se deben conciliar las cuestiones de seguridad de las personas (usuarios y personal que trabaja en los diferentes sitios) con las necesidades de conservación de los materiales.

Historic cities are rich cultural resources that have evolved over time through a sustained relationship to their territory and social fabric that have been the source of tangible and intangible heritage and traditional knowledge systems connecting people, nature and culture. However development pressures, uncontrolled tourism, disasters including those that are triggered by climate change as well as conflicts have made historic cities more vulnerable than ever before. These challenges call for mainstreaming of heritage in urban planning and development rather than mere preservation of the historic fabric taking into consideration projections of urban growth, social, economic and environmental changes.  The webinar “Towards integrated management of historic cities: challenges and opportunities” organized as part of ICCROM Lecture Series aims to bring forward key considerations for such an approach and lessons learnt from good practices in urban heritage management.

During the ongoing pandemic, memory institutions are experiencing renewed pressure to provide user-friendly remote access to sound and image heritage. However, not all audio-visual content is in a ready to share form.
Commemorating the World Day for AudioVisual Heritage, this webinar aims to draw attention to the pressing need for preserving sound and image heritage and through it, the cultural record of 20th and 21st centuries. It illustrates the case of Vietnam’s National Archives to highlight issues ranging from institutional backlogs, intellectual property rights to technology upgrades and business planning, which memory institutions have to address, in order to make their content openly accessible for creative use.

The World Heritage Leadership Programme is launching the Nature-Culture thematic community on the PANORAMA platform, coordinated jointly by ICCROM, IUCN and ICOMOS.

PANORAMA – Solutions for a Healthy Planet is a partnership initiative to document and promote examples of inspiring, replicable case studies enabling cross-sectoral learning and inspiration. The new thematic community will become a space for heritage practitioners to share and reflect their experiences from their heritage places, and to learn with their peers how similar challenges have been addressed around the globe.

The COVID-19 crisis has led to the lockdown of educational and training institutions globally and the disruption of learning. Educators had to shift to remote learning by using online platforms, applications, and resources in order to continue with teaching and to communicate and connect with students and learners. Heritage Conservation was no exception. This webinar discusses the ways that heritage conservation learning has continued during the pandemic by highlighting the challenges facing this practical field and the learning opportunities for today and the future. The webinar offers an analytical dialogue on a range of topics concerning imparting essential skills in conservation, cognitive understanding of processes, and digital learning strategies and approaches.

Resilience is defined as the capacity of a system to deal with change and continue to develop. But what does this actually mean and why should we, as heritage professionals, be concerned with it? How can we apply it for heritage places? This dialogue will take you through a set of principles that are considered crucial for building resilience. Hear from four panelists on how these principles can be practically applied based on their hands-on experience working in diverse heritage places worldwide. Join this conversation on how to advance a resilience thinking approach for responding to change in heritage places.

Community Museums provide tangible evidence of Sudan's rich history and cultural diversity and point the way to its cultural future. This webinar presents the WSCM project dedicated to supporting the protection, post-conflict recovery, and restoration of three Community Museums in Western Sudan, enabling them to provide for the educational and cultural needs of their communities. The project aimed to help ensure the museum buildings and enclosures are protected and fit for purpose, their contents are conserved and recorded, their displays attractive and engaging for communities because these were well researched, explained, and designed. The project also aimed to set standards, in three cultural hubs, of expectation and goals for government support, internal and external funders.

Every year, significant cultural heritage resources, in different parts of the world, continue to be vulnerable to fire risk. Often perceived as a rare risk, large fires are far more frequent if we consider the number of incidents at a national or international level. The ongoing pandemic and ensuing social, as well as political upheavals have further exacerbated the risk.

Following ICCROM’s International seminar “Heritage on fire: who ́s next? Fire risk management for cultural heritage" held on 26 – 28 June 2019, in Rio de Janeiro – Brazil, this webinar will discuss the magnitude of the fire risk and how institutions can enhance both prevention and preparedness by organising joint online simulations with civil defence, disaster risk reduction and heritage institutions in times of COVID-19. A multidisciplinary panel will present the first of its kind national simulation, held virtually, in Estonia. 

The webinar is organised within the framework of ICCROM’s flagship programme on First Aid and Resilience in Times of Crisis (FAR). It is the eighth in the series of webinars on Heritage and Pandemics, and highlights the collective experience of FAR alumni network at ongoing multi-hazard risk management amidst COVID-19 restrictions. ICCROM is grateful to all its partners and in particular to the Swedish Post Code Foundation for enabling this exchange.

COVID-19 pandemic has significantly impacted the international museum community and confronted it with critical questions and decisions about the future of our museums. In order to successfully overcome ongoing and future challenges in the post-COVID-19 world, it will be crucial for museums to adapt and proactively demonstrate their value to society. In order to comprehensively address these critical issues, providing useful insights on ways forward to realize the full potential of museums as agents of transformation, UNESCO and ICCROM have joined forces to organize the webinar “Museums after the pandemic”.
