Field Schools

The AAHM network organizes field schools that offer in-service professionals, advanced students and staff from institutional members the opportunity to study heritage conservation in real-life situations with the guidance of leading experts in this field. The field schools also facilitate exchange between members and serves as a platform to discuss current professional issues in the field of conservation management of the region’s cultural heritage.

AAHM Field Schools offer a combination of theoretical background lectures, field visits and a problem-solving charrette. Alternative modalities for Field Schools include a mobile workshop format, bringing the field schools to sites requiring the most immediate assistance.

The AAHM Field Schools and affiliated field schools are planned within a coordinated framework in order for diverse field schools to complement each other and to address needs within the existing regular programme curricula offered in the region.

The inaugural AAHM Field School was organized in Macao SAR, China in November 2003 on the topic “Conserving Asia’s Built Heritage: An Integrated Management Approach” (see links below for more details). Another Field School titled “Conservation and Presentation of Archaeological Heritage in an Urban Context” was conducted in December 2005 in Hanoi. It was jointly organized by Deakin University (Australia) and Hanoi Architectural Research Institute (Vietnam).
