Aberdeen 2022: Heritage on the Edge

The IHBC’s 2022 Aberdeen School explores how practitioners in the 21st Century can and should manage conservation and heritage that is, in different ways, ‘on the edge’.

Challenges may include geographical issues – urban and rural locations and populated and unpopulated areas. They may be social, and reflect diverging pressures across communities and development. Or they might be cultural, where values and tastes evolve as perceptions and understanding change. We see this with new industries such as nuclear, oil and gas, as they go out of favour for environmental reasons, inevitably creating new legacies, as well as Victorian and Modernist styles that veer in and out of fashion.

The Aberdeen School offers in-person and virtual content from a representative but diverse range of conservation-related challenges for heritage on the edge, looking across Aberdeen City, Aberdeenshire, Scotland, the UK, Europe and far beyond, including, notably, South Georgia and the Sandwich Islands.

Aberdeen 2022 gives priority to continuing professional development (CPD) for practitioners with conservation, heritage and inter-disciplinary interests. As such, the programme reflects all aspects the IHBC’s Competences and Areas of Competences, for the Friday Day (and Virtual) School, themed around key current issues for practitioners:

  • Environment: The physical impact of climate change and the environment upon architecture and place
  • Innovation: The drive for innovation and adaptation in heritage practice
  • Regeneration: The role of heritage-led regeneration in overcoming economic and social challenges.
