HEART (Heritage Emergency and Response Training) 2019 will take place December 9-13, 2019, at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, DC. This year's HEART programme builds upon the DC programme launched in 2017 and further refined through state and territorial programs in Puerto Rico, the US Virgin Islands, and Maine. HEART 2019 seeks applications from US cultural heritage professionals and first responder/emergency management professionals from all 56 states and territories and Indian Country.
In the last decade, the discipline of Critical Heritage Studies has been on the rise worldwide. In each language, however, the word “heritage” can mean something different. Beyond this, there are often significant cultural differences; that is, in each culture, country, nation, region or even village, the concept and understanding of heritage can differ. Even, if only slightly nuanced differences, their implications can be significant when it comes to how heritage is understood, performed, practiced, and managed.

This year’s theme of the annual Conservation Matters in Wales (#CMW2019) conference is busting the myth that conservators keep things as they are.

CMW are now seeking proposals for talks on ideas, case studies and impacts of disruptive conservation.
