Sustainable Heritage Development International Field School | Viet Nam

Sustainable Heritage Development International Field School

Organised by the International Institute for the Inclusive Museum, this Field School will address how World Heritage sites, museums, cultural agencies, art institutions and heritage tourism can play a role in the transformation of local culture and economy. It will take place at different locations in Viet Nam between 29 December 2014 and 17 January 2015.

In the course of the event, participants will explore how international legal conventions for heritage protection and safeguarding cultural diversity, governance structures, and local area planning intersect within integrated and interdisciplinary cultural management.

The Field School aims to provide first-hand experience to graduate students, researchers and professionals, as capacity building for locating culture in sustainable development in a rapidly-globalising world. Arts, culture and heritage places and environmental resources of all kinds will be examined in the context of the four pillars of cultural, economic, environmental and social sustainability. The focus will be on real-life examples and documented case studies in Vietnam.

This Field School is offered as a professional development programme to those involved in archaeology, anthropology, planning, postcolonial studies, sustainable development and cultural heritage law.

Annual cohorts are targeted to include participants from several countries to create an immersion learning environment as an international cross cultural exchange programme. 6 places are still available to take part in the 2014-15 edition – applications should be sent by 1 November.
