The stories sites tell are universal. The dangers they face are immense. The cultural treasures that have been entrusted to us are under constant attack by time, neglect, natural forces, and human actions. Preserving this heritage has—from the beginning—been the overriding mission of World Monuments Fund, as they work with local partners around the globe to provide financial and technical support for preservation, restoration, and long-term stewardship. The Review meeting will be held from 18 – 20 August in USA. Prof. Galla is in attendance as an External Selection Panel expert member for the final stage in the review and selection process for the 2020 cycle of the program.
Ecomuseums and Regional Museums
Regional museums strive to serve their regional/local communities. How can regional museums be active as responsible partners in respecting, preserving and interpreting traditions of cultural and natural heritage? Regional museums can be responsive and collaborate with experts across different fields, collecting both intangible and tangible heritage – to represent people whose voices have not always been heard, especially in preserving customs and traditional practices related to natural resources. Regional museums should expand the field of museum studies to cover ecological issues of the past, present and future, building on traditions of planting, harvesting, fishing, animal husbandry etc. and effective management of the cultural and/or natural environment for a sustainable future. Prof. Galla is the Rapporteur on 5th September for the daylong session on Ecomuseums and Regional Museums Seminar Day.
