reducing risk to cultural heritage

Irene Karsten from CCI presents the methode for reducing risks
Cultural Heritage Agency of the Netherlands (RCE), International Centre for the Study of the Preservation and Restoration of Cultural Property (ICCROM) and Canadian conservation Institute (CCI) organised in November 2012 a 3 day Conference on risk management. Besides theoretical information of the systematically approach how to investigate values using a Value pie, and how an assessment should be setup, plenty of case studies were illustrated. The case studies presented by participants of workshops that took place on several occasions during the last 5 years under guidance of -for example- Robbert Waller and Stephan Michalski and their students like Vesna Zivkovic captured a broad range of heritage, from archaeological sites to wall painting in temples. We even had small workshops on value assessment and making a value pie ourselves. We got a short hands-on introduction of the CCI risk management methode and database. Next year in 2013 ICCROM will launch a website ‘reducing risks to cultural heritage’.
