Cities’ Identity through Architecture and Arts (CITAA), Cairo, Egypt

11 May 2017

Conference Email: ctiaa@ierek.com
Conference information: http://www.ierek.com/events/cities-identity-through-architecture-and-arts/#introduction

Every city has its unique and valuable identity, this identity is revealed through its physical and visual form, it is seen through the eyes of its residents and users. The city develops over time, and its identity evolves with it. Reflecting the rapid and constant changes the city is subjected to, Architecture and Arts, is the embodiment of the cultural, historical, and economical characteristics of the city. This conference is dedicated for the investigation of the different new approaches developed in Architecture and Contemporary arts. It will focus on the basis of urban life and identities.

It will discuss the examples and tendencies in dealing with urban identities as well as the transformation of cities and urban cultures mentioned in terms of their form, identity, and their current art. Contemporary art, when subjected to experiments, continues to be produced in various directions, to be consumed and to put forward new ideas. Art continuously renews itself -from new materials to different means of communication, from interactive works to computer games, from new approaches to perceptional paradigms and problems of city and nature of the millennium.

Conference on development of preventive conservation in France

08 Jun 2017

Location of conference: Archives Nationales, Pierrefittes, Paris
Conference enquiries: info@aprevu.com

The Masters in preventive conservation from the Paris I Pantheon-Sorbonne University has existed since 1993. This period of more than 20 years has allowed the first assessment of the impact of this professional training. Our Association des Preventeurs Universitaires - Conservation du patrimoine (APrevU), founded by a group of graduates of the twentieth year, is organising a conference on the development of preventive conservation in France since the creation of this course, trying to measure the effects on cultural heritage's conservation and its evolution over time.

The participation of foreign professionals will be welcomed to keep things in perspective our practice of preventive conservation.

Of course, the success of this initiative will count on the participation of a maximum of persons connected with this training. We would like on this occasion to invite you to formulate your opinions and discuss a number of issues:
*Did this training close the gap observed in France in 1992 during the conference "Preventive Conservation" organised by the ARAAFU?
*Did the diploma structure the profession or did the preventive conservation remain an extra skill used by different professional profiles? Where do we find the graduates today?
*Was there an increase in jobs and preventive conservation departments since the creation of the training?
*Did the tools proposed during the training (methods of assessment, collection sites, prevention plans, etc.) evolved since 1993?
*Does sustainable development have an influence today on preventive conservation?
*Is there a "French touch" in the way of practising preventive conservation?

CIPA2017 symposium, Ottawa, Canada

28 Aug 2017

CIPA2017 will focus on Digital Workflows for Conservation.
Location: Ottawa, Canada
Event info: http://cipaottawa.org/

CIPA’s mission is to encourage the development of principles and practices for the recording, documentation and information management for all aspects of cultural heritage; and to support and encourage the development of specialized tools and techniques in support of these activities.

We are pleased to invite you to participate in CIPA2017, the 26th biennial symposium, being held from August 28 to September 1, 2017, in Ottawa, Canada. CIPA2017 will focus on Digital Workflows for Conservation.

The rapid rise in new digital technologies has revolutionized the practice of recording heritage places. Digital tools and media offer a myriad of new opportunities for collecting, analyzing and disseminating information about heritage sites. With new opportunities, there are also conflicts, and an intense effort to incorporate digital media into the education of conservation professionals. Issues regarding the proper, innovative and research-focused uses of digital media in heritage conservation are urgent topics in the global heritage conservation field, and CIPA and its partners have played a leading role in this area of cross-disciplinary research and practice.

The symposium will offer a unique opportunity for educators, professionals, heritage institutions, and managers of heritage places to share, exchange, and explore new approaches, best practices, and research results in the area of these workflows.
