Training and work experience placements are available in areas such as curatorial, education, conservation, research, publications, information management, public programs, and grantmaking.
Protecting Cultural Heritage and Historic Structures from Disasters
Disasters are increasing globally. Their adverse impacts on lives, livelihoods, and regional/local economies are increasingly felt. Losses to both our tangible and intangible cultural heritage and historic structures and sites during disasters are increasing also. These losses include not only those to sites, structures and artifacts of cultural significance, but they are also impacting cultural tourism and the financial resources cultural heritage and historic structures can introduce to local communities, cities and countries.
This webinar provides an overview of these concepts as an introduction to the Design Challenges For Disaster Preparedness and Recovery Session held at the October 2013 APT Conference in New York City.
This session qualifies for 1 AIA Learning Unit.
Webinar production was made possible with a grant from the National Center for Preservation Technology and Training (NCPTT).
Registration fee is $35 for APT members; $45 for non-members. Viewing is free to educational institutions; contact firstname.lastname@example.org for the free web link.
