Changing contexts: from environment to ideas
The 11th Triennial Meeting for Conervators of the Baltic States invites abstracts on the themes of: Changing contexts: from environment to ideas.
The economic, social and political changes in recent decades have given a serious challenge in heritage sector. The change in society brings along a change in heritage; though, at first sight this may seem even paradoxical. Heritage is considered something that anchors us to the past, and brings persistence and assurance to our lives. The truth is that heritage may, but does not necessarily have to give us support and assurance. This can happen only when heritage changes itself constantly. Such a blend of permanence and change characteristic to heritage is achieved by the continuous re-creation of heritage, in which conservators play a special and important role. When dealing with the importance of conservation, besides the often prevalent economic importance, we need to consider its role in shaping identity and creating social cohesion and the part it plays in education, and more generally, in the social communication system. By conserving objects, meanings are created and values presented to the community and society more generally. An important factor that needs to be stressed is the locality and uniqueness of heritage. Every heritage object and phenomenon is located in a definite environment and is inseparable from it.
