ICOMOS GA2020 International Conference: Shared cultures – Shared heritage – Shared responsibility

The overarching theme for the GA2020 Scientific Symposium is ‘Shared Cultures – Shared Heritage – Shared Responsibility’. The theme recognises that globalisation, transnationalism, digital connectivity, and the willing or forced movement of people have contributed to the making (and unmaking) of hybrid, pluralist places, practices, and collections. In this sense, places, practices, objects, and collections are frequently connected with and valued by multiple and diverse groups and communities.
