Moved Online Post

A workshop on “Built Heritage in Crisis Workshop: Preparedness Measures – Guidelines, Capacity Building Programs and Their Potential with Regards to Emergency Documentation” takes place on May 7th 2021 in the framework of the KulturGutRetter project.

Time: May 7th 2021 | Place: Online Zoom Conference

The department of Building Archaeology and Built-Heritage Conservation at the TU-Berlin, in cooperation with the German Archaeological Institute (DAI), is working on a subproject. This subproject is part of a bigger project KulturGutRetter (KGR) – An emergency mechanism for cultural heritage in crisis situations that is being developed by the DAI together with the German Federal Agency for Technical relief (THW), the Römisch-Germanisches Zentralmuseum (RGZM) – Leibniz Research Institute for Archaeology and other partners from the Archaeological Heritage Network (ArcHerNet).

The role of building archaeology and built heritage conservation (HBB) within this project

The department offers vast expertise in the documentation of tangible heritage and extensive participation in international projects, not to mention the long experience in capacity building, enriched in recent years by the various capacity-building programs in Germany, Jordan and Lebanon within the “Zero Hour” project. This bundle of experiences will be enhanced in cooperation with the German Archaeological Institute DAI, in the subproject “Emergency Documentation – Model for Rapid Basic Recording of Immovable Cultural Property”.


The first workshop is one of three online workshops, that will be announced in due time. The first workshop will take place on May 7th, 2021, on the Zoom Platform. This workshop focuses on preparedness activities that strengthen the capacity of locals to deal sufficiently with emergencies. This does include different training activities, guidelines and teaching materials.
The first block contemplates capacity-building activities in Iraq and Bosnia whereas the second block is
dedicated to enlighten capacity-building materials of ICCROM, followed by the guideline integrated building documentation of the Syrian Heritage Archive Project. The information and the questions from the first two blocks will set ground to an open discussion round.

The workshop participation is only via invitation. Nonetheless, a limited number of external seats is available under request. In case of interest, please send a brief e-mail to madasaleh@ymail.com mentioning your experiences and motivation.
