Heritage Conservation and Social Engagement explores different kinds of engagement, participation, access, and creative use of resources motivated by the practice of conservation; and offers ethical and practical perspectives from which to approach cultural heritage projects by exploring the complexities of cross-disciplinary collaborations. Such collaborations are often influenced by the colonial baggage of museums, and their effectiveness can vary based on context, objectives, methods, and available resources. However, efforts to promote inclusion and engagement through museum collections and the broader heritage sector are becoming even more socially relevant. The heritage sector has tools and ability to help fight prejudices that are invariably based on misinformation or manipulation of facts, and this book joins those efforts, in the understanding that nothing can be done without dialogue and engagement.
