HERITΛGE is happy to announce its brand new workshop Introduction to the General Principles of Cultural Heritage Conservation.

The 3-day online workshop is designed to equip heritage professionals with the skills and knowledge they need to extend the life of cultural heritage while enhancing the transmission of its messages and values.

Conservation is critical to preserving the physical and cultural characteristics of heritage objects, and ensuring their value is not diminished. Our course provides an overview of the principles and objectives of conservation, outlining its methodology, ethics, evolution, and contemporary international context.

“This course is an introduction to the principles of conservation and as such, it is a unique opportunity for our organization to place conservation at the heart of heritage management,” said HERITΛGE Director, Dr. Evangelos Kyriakidis.

Led by Alexis Stefanis, an Assistant Professor at the Department of Conservation of Antiquities and Works of Art of the University of West Attica, Greece, it offers a unique opportunity for heritage professionals to place conservation at the heart of heritage management.

By the end of the course, participants will have gained an understanding of the potential of conservation, and the processes necessary to maximize it. Funding opportunities are available for eligible participants.
