RICHES Final Conference
Amsterdam, 14-15 April 2016
Borders blur. Disciplines merge. Barriers come down. The 21st century is a time of repositioning, and there is a key role to play for heritage. How do we (re)present ourselves, our public, our archives, our countries and our institutes?
This is the leitmotiv of RICHES final conference, presenting the project results together with inspiring keynote speakers who will reflect and explore collaboratively future visions of heritage.
What to expect?
Exciting keynote speakers will reflect on our central questions. How can we enrich heritage and heritage practices to meet the challenges of a new era? How can heritage professionals create meaning for young people? For newcomers? How can technology help us?
Presentations, demonstrations and workshops will be organized around themes such as connecting, self-expression, participation, power, skills and crafts, food and festivities and citizenship.
Day 1: Identity Matters: How do we represent our changing selves in/with heritage?
Day 2: Matters of Identity: dissecting identity - what are the building blocks? How do we construct and reconstruct our identity through heritage?
