French [email protected] Kwun: TAI KWUN CONVERSATIONS - HERITAGE IN TIMES OF WAR

As wars occur in various places around the world, cultural heritage is put in jeopardy. To protect endangered sites and artefacts that are part of local identity and universal heritage, preservation initiatives are taking place at the heart of conflict areas. Why is cultural heritage preservation important in the midst of a humanitarian crisis? How do at-risk archaeologists, conservators, and cultural workers operate in dangerous and uncertain environments? How to rebuild and display cultural heritage in exhibition spaces for sharing with the public? From political decision to public display, this programme aims to raise awareness of the importance of protecting cultural heritage in conflict-affected areas. It introduces actual fieldworks and innovations to trace the journey of heritage preservation in times of war.
