Workshop in the United Kingdom discusses protection, conservation and restoration of the Cultural Heritage
In response to initiatives to strengthen the network of researchers around the subject of digital contribution to cultural heritage, FGV’s School of Applied Mathematics (EMAp) was invited to join a Brazilian delegation to attend the event at the University of Brighton (United Kingdom) to discuss the topic “Community-led digital strategies for safeguarding and (re)building resilient cultural heritage,” held on April 29-30. The goal of the meeting was to identify issues of common interest that are in the scope of public calls for bilateral development between the United Kingdom and Brazil.
The workshop aimed to explore opportunities for the development of community and digital strategies for the protection, conservation and restoration of Cultural Heritage. The Brazilian delegation, composed of Asla Medeiros and Sá (FGV EMAp), Cristiana Serejo (National Museum/UFRJ), Edmundo Pereira (National Museum/UFRJ) and Laura Taves (Museum of Tomorrow) sought to explore, in an expanded and interdisciplinary manner how digital technologies or methodologies for their development can support and empower communities to safeguard, protect and restore their cultural heritage and related public institutions from threats such as decay and destruction due to neglect, looting, trafficking, vandalism, and natural or man-made disasters.
“The opportunity of the visit is presented in the context of an effort of the technological scientific community linked to the sector of cultural heritage, in search of solutions to the disaster occurred in the National Museum. Delegations from Brazil (Rio de Janeiro), Mexico and Egypt were invited for the event. The goal is to share experiences and to seek solutions and financing for projects,” said Asla Medeiros and Sá.
The workshop was funded by the Accelerator Scheme for International Networks and Impacts (ASINI) of the University of Brighton and was organized by members of the Center for Safe, Intelligent and Usable Systems, Resilience Center for Social Justice, and Design History Center. This scheme uses resources allocated to the University by Research England as part of the Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF) specifically to support activities that will be directly and primarily beneficial to the challenges of developing countries in the Development Assistance Committee (DAC).
