SESSION 09: Culture, Heritage and Resilience: Local Creative Responses to Natural Disasters, COVID-19 and Climate Change

Cultural heritage is rooted in community and place. Cultural heritage sites often sit at the heart of a vibrant ecosystem of community, civic, cultural, and creative organizations. As we enter an era when natural disasters and climate change increasingly threaten cultural heritage (earthquakes, drought, etc.), how can local creative and cultural industries’ ecosystems help to build the resilience of heritage sites? What have we learned from previous disasters? What are the key lessons from the COVID-19 pandemic?
