IMIHPD: Innovative models of integrating heritage preservation and development

Research question: how a modern manifesto for the safeguarding of heritage in the 21st century would look like?

Sub questions: Could new interpretations or the preservation of fragments of architectural and cultural heritage sites be a form of safeguarding? What should our goals be and how do they relate to the current sociopolitical developments? Which form of the architectural object should be considered worthy of preservation – the initial one or the current? The transformations, communication and interactions in the processes of engagement, participation and inclusion of citizens also provide space for their own formation of tangible and intangible heritage. Who and how may capitalize on these processes?

Main topics addressed:

  • The development of more participative interpretation and governance models that rely on greater involvement of the private sector and civil society.
  • The engagement of new audiences and communities combining culture, informal culture and cultural heritage exposition and preservation with innovative ways of cultural transmission and creative re-use.

The project will seek to construct a social interdisciplinary platform. It will bring together relevant heritage stakeholders’ representatives from research communities, heritage practitioners from public or private cultural institutions (heritage sites, libraries, archives, museums, and other public or private collections) and organizations (NGOs, associations), as well as policy-makers.

The methodology is based on critical mapping of existing research and practice via field work and proposals for optimal interventions in the public spaces in Sofia city center. The social platform will try to develop an understanding of the challenges and opportunities for research and innovation in the participatory preservation, (re)use and management of cultural heritage. It will encourage an active participation of a large number of stakeholders aiming at a better understanding of the European cultural heritage. Moreover, it should facilitate and support a better understanding of the past to better build the common future. The challenge is to support the multidisciplinary awareness needed for providing a comprehensive framework for the accessibility, preservation, participatory and sustainable management of cultural resources and assets, based on a holistic, social understanding of European culture and cultural heritage.

The project will be truly interdisciplinary and will give opportunity to further develop the perception of culturally specific topics and a common roadmap for future understanding, exploration and promotion  of new models of heritage integrated preservation and development through new medial and ICT.
