COVID-19, lockdowns, movement restrictions have brought our daily lives to a standstill in almost every country in the world. It has hugely impacted large economies, but it has disproportionately affected the livelihoods of the most marginalised people. Cultural bearers, artisans, traditional livelihoods, and many others whose survival and well-being are dependent on the practices of cultural heritage are among those who are worst affected. In order to save lives and cultural heritage in crises, a collaboration needs to be forged between humanitarian aid and cultural sectors. This webinar will bring reflections and learnings from the lens of a Humanitarian Aid Worker and Cultural First Aider, on how we can reach, understand, connect and work better with communities and cultures in crises.

The concept of resilience has gained significant traction in past few years and applied to various fields. However, there is general lack of clarity about this term, often misused as a jargon. Therefore, while on one hand, we need to understand the term itself, we should also explore it in relation to heritage, especially as we go through COVID pandemic and emerge from it. The objective of this webinar is to reflect on the symbiotic relationship between heritage and resilience; for building resilience of heritage on one hand and exploring how heritage can contribute towards resilience on the other hand. Through various case examples, a multidisciplinary group of panellists will bring forward multiple perspectives on heritage resilience from 'cultural, 'natural', ‘social’, 'economic' and disaster risk’ dimensions. The presentations will further explore the implication of resilience thinking on heritage conservation and management practices.

How can we access and keep in touch with cultural heritage during a pandemic? How can we be inspired by cultural heritage to develop our own art and craft activities? The webinar will reflect on exploiting digital possibilities that allow appropriating cultural heritage in ways that it is not possible with a physical approach, offering digital connections and tools for people in different geographical areas to come together and interact via this ‘virtual’ heritage, while ultimately keep building it together.

COVID-19 has not caused the first pandemic in the history of human existence, proving humanity to be resilient enough to survive through a long history of pandemics, among other globally-impactful natural and/or human-induced hazards. The example of Egypt will be used to address the global question of how traditional knowledge, as a cultural tool, is vital to close gaps in state-led pandemic responses, build resilience in post-pandemic recovery, as well as address the challenges and possible ways to mainstreaming traditional knowledge, response and recovery strategies and plans.
