Seminar in India

From December 4 to December 13, a group of researchers from Poland, including the representatives of the International Cultural Centre, Wawel Royal Castle and Krakow Academy of Fine Arts, took part in a circuit seminar in India – a study tour organised within the framework of HERITAGE AWARENESS programme, a joint initiative of the ICC and Indian National Trust for Art and Cultural Heritage (INTACH). The primary objective of the visit was to learn about the Indian achievements in the field of preservation and protection of cultural heritage. Needless to say, it also created an opportunity to promote Polish experience in the given fields. The participants visited New Delhi (where most of the events took place) as well as the state of Goa, recognised, for example, for preservation of the Roman Catholic churches, and Bombay, an excellent example of communal preservation efforts of the public and private sectors. The visit was further fleshed out with a number of official meetings with Indian experts, including the representatives of the Indian Ministry of Culture who promised financial assistance to Polish-Indian cooperation. This support will makes it possible to organise a seminar for Indian partners in October 2012 at the ICC. The meeting will focus on Polish and Central European challenges and methods of preservation and management of cultural heritage sites, in particular the monuments from the UNESCO World Heritage List.
