Event description
A forum with Indigenous communities to develop new approaches for heritage conservation

About this Event

Organized by THEOPHILOS, the ICOMOS International Scientific Committee on Theory and Philosophy of Conservation and Restoration, co-hosted by the First Nations House of Learning (FNHL) at the University of BritishColumbia (UBC), in collaboration with the ICOMOS ISC for the Interpretation and Presentation of Cultural Heritage Sites, and with administrative support from ICOMOS Canada.

The aim of this conference/gathering is to provide a forum for dialogue with Indigenous communities in developing new approaches and best practices for World Heritage criteria, valorisation, conservation and restoration that both recognises and ensures the protection of Indigenous Cultural Heritage in all its diverse forms.

This gathering offers Indigenous peoples opportunities to play significant roles in the process of defining the scope and nature of an Indigenous Heritage site or contribution. The gathering provides a safe and respectful opportunity for dialogue and consultation.

This conference aims to work within the framings of the UN Declaration of the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (2007) and the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada: Calls to Action (2015).

UNDRIP: Article 11

Indigenous peoples have the right to practise and revitalize their cultural traditions and customs. This includes the right to maintain, protect and develop the past, present and future manifestations of their cultures, such as archaeological and historical sites, artefacts, designs, ceremonies, technologies and visual and performing arts and literature.
