The Raymond Lemaire International Centre for Conservation (KU Leuven) will hold the “Thematic Week” which will be held at the Arenberg Castle, Heverlee, Belgium, from 22 to 24 January 2014. The topic of the conference is on community involvement in valuing and managing national heritage monuments and sites. “The value of heritage for society is increasingly underscored” as the conference organizers state.
At the same time, there has been a growing interest for the involvement of local communities in the management plans of heritage sites. The 2014 Thematic Week will offer an overview of the origin of this discourse as well as problems and shortcomings in relation to community involvement will be addressed and evaluated.
Attendance in the conference is free, but due to limited space, interested individuals are asked to email firstname.lastname@example.org
