This year APTCCARN, Institut Konservasi and the Grimwade Centre for Cultural Materials Conservation will gather together to reconnect again and share creative conservation initiatives and ‘learned’ practices drawn from the tropics. From museums and memory sites in Bali, Indonesia, they will bring together conservation and heritage professionals from the Indo-Pacific region with practitioners in Indonesia- including professional heritage and museum workers, artists, makers, knowledge holders, collectors – to engage, exchange and create conservation initiatives.
The face-to-face forum will centre on materiality and living heritage in the tropics – examining modes of making and documentation, place-based approaches to heritage and conservation, and the knowledge ecologies for conservation in the tropics. The three-day event aims to engender deep listening, sharing, and participation across 7 sites over 3 days.
From 3, 4, 5 July 2023, they will come together to reflect on:
Heritage and sustainable conservation: what knowledge ecologies to translate
Traditional & contemporary Balinese art: creative knowledge ecologies and conservation
Why, whom and how tradition met modernity in the tropics
Reflections on collective creative initiatives, conservation practice and living heritage
Optional additional one day on 6 July in the East of Bali
