People, Nature and Culture – Engaging Communities and Building Sustainability through Heritage Conservation About the speaker LANGUAGE Notes to HKBU students Registration
Natural and cultural heritage conservation are often separated out as distinct practices that seldom be considered in connection with each other. In this talk, Alex Tam will outline the concept of People-centred Approach to Conservation of Nature and Culture (PNC) put forth by the inter-governmental heritage organisation, ICCROM, which offers a holistic framework in heritage conservation beyond the dichotomy of nature and culture. Through the case studies in Sri Lanka, he will discuss the roles of heritage in contributing to society’s sustainable development.
Alex Tam is the Centre Executive of the Centre for Research and Development in Visual Arts at the Academy of Visual Arts. His experience and interests revolve around the intersections of arts and cultural heritage. Last November, he took part in the World Heritage Leadership Programme – a capacity building programme organised by ICCROM that aims to advance knowledge and practices in conservation and heritage management.
