What are Dialogues for the New Century?

Events and discussions addressing the conservation of cultural heritage in a changing world.
The IIC regularly initiates presentations and dialogues that explore emerging issues in the modern world and the relationship of those issues to the preservation of cultural heritage. These events are also offered to raise awareness of heritage conservation among relevant professions and the public sector. Each event benefits from a variety of expertise, in a broad spectrum of disciplines, contributing unique perspectives on a specific topic. The events are open to all but also targeted to create productive collaborations among a variety of stakeholders. Edited transcripts can be found below for each event.
