People interested in CSVPA (assuming you are, reading this blog), may be interested in the Call for Application for UNESCO Chair Programme on Cultural Heritage and Risk Management, International Training Course (ITC) on Disaster Risk Management of Cultural Heritage 2017, 12th year. The course is scheduled for 28th August to 16th September 2017 in Japan.
As per the announcement: “Cultural heritage is increasingly exposed to disasters caused by natural and human induced hazards such as earthquakes, floods, fires, terrorism etc. Recent examples include Earthquakes in Central Italy and Myanmar in 2016, Nepal earthquake in 2015, Balkan floods in 2014 and ongoing conflicts in Syria and Yemen. These disasters not only effect the immovable heritage components such as monuments, archaeological sites and historic urban areas but also cause damage to the movable components that include museum collections and heritage objects that are in active use such as religious and other artefacts of significance to the local community.”
If interested, do contact the organisers directly, not this CSVPA blog. Note the cut off for applications is 5 April, so be quick!
ETA on 14 April: “The deadline of the application is extended to April 19th, 2017 (Japan Standard Time).“
