Tuesday, 2 November, 2021 to Wednesday, 3 November, 2021

Danube University Krems, Austria will be holding a workshop led by Dr. Patricia Engel on the topic of Indonesian Conservation Theory. The workshop will be held virtually over Zoom, or if possible, in person with a Zoom portion for those who cannot travel to Austria.

Based on her many years' research into conservation theory, and our ongoing co-operation with Institut Seni Indonesia, Yogyakarta, Patricia Engel, scientific staff member of Department for Building and Environment at Danube University Krems, Austria, will hold a workshop on the ways of applying or adapting European conservation theory to the Indonesian cultural setup. The workshop will not only seek to find a path towards a new conservation theory appropriate for Indonesia, but will also allow for discussion of problem points in the European conservation theory. Another result will be a theoretical scheme of approaching the issue that can hopefully be applied to many cases. Mandatory requirement for launching this work is discussing the terms and definitions that have been in circulation so far and have not been applied consistently.
