A global perspective on protecting, utilising and developing urban heritage for the future.
The Ironbridge International Institute for Cultural Heritage invites submissions for our upcoming exhibition Inheriting the City: Approaches to Heritage into the Future. This exhibition will form part of a major international conference, Inheriting the City: Advancing Understandings of Urban Heritage, which will take place in the magnificent Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall in the heart of Taipei City, Taiwan.
About the conference and exhibition
The conference will explore the type of heritage, both tangible and intangible, that cities and towns will pass to future generations, and the processes through which the heritage of cities is being re-made, re-presented and re-used. For further information regarding conference themes, please see our call for papers and selected abstracts pages.
The exhibition provides a unique international platform for towns, cities and related organisations from across the world to highlight their approaches to embracing, protecting and utilising urban heritage for the future. Exhibitors will have the opportunity to showcase relevant initiatives and examples of best practice to an international audience of academics, researchers, policy makers and practitioners in this field.
What to submit
We invite submissions of exhibition boards* that fit with the theme of the conference, and particularly those that highlight examples of initiatives in towns and cities where heritage is being:
- used to regenerated local economies and communities;
- conserved and managed in interesting ways for future generations;
- marketed and promoted to stimulate tourism;
- integrated with new approaches to planning, architecture and urban design.
*Exhibition board artwork can include a series of photographs (colour or black and white), cgi’s, plans, drawings and explanatory text (in English) and should be A2 in size.
