Heritage, People and Law

14 November 2018

Venue: INTACH, New Delhi
Aim
The broad aim of this master class is to introduce the participants to the understanding of heritage regulations and policies related to protected and unprotected heritage sites and interpreting them to implement and make a strong case for protection and preservation. 
Contents
India is a diverse country with vast heritage. People from different countries, religions, cultures, dynasties have peacefully co-existed in India for several centuries. It has shaped up India’s large and unique heritage. However, there are currently about 3650 ancient monuments and archaeological sites and remains under the protection of Archaeological Survey of India. To make the situation worse, the heritage falling in the more popular areas are in good upkeep, but the heritage in remote towns and villages are not even maintained properly. With sudden “development”, the natural and built environment has been under tremendous pressure; hence a lot has been destroyed already. Heritage protection through legislation and regulation is probably one of the reasonable way to preserve heritage.  The need for understanding of Acts, Laws, Legislation, Regulation and Public Interest Litigation as a tool to conservation has led to the development of this master class.
Learning Outcomes
Upon completion of this Master class the participants will be able to:
  • develop an understanding of the Heritage Legislation and Regulations
  • gain introduction to the notions of value and significance associated with various nuances of heritage
  • develop basic knowledge of the approaches to legal aspects in conservation
  • start thinking critically about the present and future of heritage in the view of legislation and policies
Speakers
The Master Class will be taught by the staff at INTACH Heritage Academy and invited guest speakers on specific aspects of the Master Class.

Study, Use and Conservation of Stone

26 – 29 November 2018

Venue: New Delhi and Varanasi

Aim

The course will introduce some of the key philosophical issues and practical challenges which arise in the use and conservation of stone in historic buildings.

Content

Stone is one of the primary materials used traditionally in the construction of innumerable historic buildings. The range of buildings varies from modest vernacular dwellings to high palatial complexes. It is therefore critical to understand the building stones and examine the issues which arise in the conservation of stone in historic buildings. A four-day course is designed to provide an understanding on the conservation and use of stone in a historic building. The theory behind various uses of stone as building material will be supported by illustrative discussions and practical session at site. This will help illustrate a range of problems in-situ and discuss these issues with experts on building stones, fellow participants and traditional stone masons working at site. A guided tour of the site will demonstrate how some of the issues and problems of stone conservation are being addressed at this particular building. Specially designed practical sessions will provide a unique opportunity for participants to work alongside traditional craftspeople and gain hands-on experience of working with stone.

Learning Outcomes

Upon completion of this course the participants should
  • develop an understanding of stones as a building material in a historic building,
  • assess the problems and issues associated with stone in buildings,
  • gain introduction to some of the key approaches and techniques to the conservation of stone,
  • start thinking critically about the present and future of traditional building craft skills, especially those related to the use of stone.

Venue: INTACH, New Delhi

Aim

A broad aim of the course is to introduce the concept of Cultural Tourism and create an awareness about  the  importance  and  fragile nature  of heritage  places,  collections  and  living  cultures that foster the capability and prospects of such concepts in India whilst working towards achieving a sustainable future for them.

Content

As per the ICOMOS International Cultural Tourism Charter (1999): “Tourism itself has become an increasingly complex phenomenon, with political, economic, social, cultural, educational, bio-physical, ecological and aesthetic dimensions. The achievement of a beneficial inter-action between the potentially conflicting expectations and aspirations of visitors and host or local communities, presents many challenges and opportunities.” The course is an attempt to explore and assess these various dimensions of Cultural Tourism. We will discuss the challenges and opportunities that tourism provides for ‘authentic’ cultural exchange between locals and visitors. In the Indian context, cultural tourism may include aspects related to heritage, pilgrimage, spirituality, crafts etc. We will discuss these aspects with help of case studies. A special field visit will be designed for practical experience of some of the key aspects related to cultural tourism.

Learning Outcomes

Upon completion of this course, the participants will:
  • Develop a basic knowledge of the concept of Cultural Tourism.
  • Gain an understanding of the ICOMOS International Cultural Tourism Charter.
  • Acquire an insight into the strategies relating  to  the  presentation  and  interpretation  of  heritage  places  and  cultural activities.
  • Get an exposure to the various international and national bodies associated with tourism industry, and their approaches to balance the needs of the stakeholders and the expectation of the industry.
  • Start thinking critically about the impact of cultural tourism for natural and cultural heritage sites.
