SESSION 10: Informal knowledge and heritage during Pandemics

What are the problems of local communities today? Understanding that social practices are not always related to regulations. At the lack of official responses by the authorities, informal associations and grassroots organizations have stepped up to provide for the communities, while trying to maintain their well being. Through the lens of participation, we would like to address the way groups regard heritage (sometimes even as a hindrance), their relationship with it, and the ways they make it part of their daily lives, through adaptations and appropriations.
Believing that World Heritage Centers have to be living places, allowing for life to thrive and for communities to strengthen, concepts like identity, agency, place attachment, Do It Yourself solutions and appropriation will be addressed, as ways to incorporate World Heritage Centers to peoples lives, especially in times of COVID.
