Amid the current pandemic, many cultural heritage institutions are also vulnerable to other hazard events, from fires and floods, to looting and conflict. These complex, overlapping scenarios require a new approach and a broadened scope.

This new course brings together ICCROM's CollAsia and First Aid and Resilience in Times of Crises programmes, blending one-of-a-kind online learning with hands-on practice, in partnership with the Cultural Heritage Administration of Korea (CHA), the Escuela Taller De Filipinas Foundation Inc. and, the International Council of Museums (ICOM).
