The concept of resilience has gained significant traction in past few years and applied to various fields. However, there is general lack of clarity about this term, often misused as a jargon. Therefore, while on one hand, we need to understand the term itself, we should also explore it in relation to heritage, especially as we go through COVID pandemic and emerge from it. The objective of this webinar is to reflect on the symbiotic relationship between heritage and resilience; for building resilience of heritage on one hand and exploring how heritage can contribute towards resilience on the other hand. Through various case examples, a multidisciplinary group of panellists will bring forward multiple perspectives on heritage resilience from ‘cultural, ‘natural’, ‘social’, ‘economic’ and disaster risk’ dimensions. The presentations will further explore the implication of resilience thinking on heritage conservation and management practices.
