Bottom-up driven adaptive heritage reuse: policies and practices
OpenHeritage Policy Conference
The process of how locally-driven heritage management and new governance mechanisms have gained prominence in heritage management will be the focus of the discussion. Providing a thoughtful overview for the rest of the day the discussion will summarize the main vehicles of change and the mechanisms behind them.
The panel discussion will bring together municipal representatives and bottom-up initiatives to exchange about their main motivations behind of cooperation: their common interests, the mutual benefits but even possible drawbacks. Representatives from Ghent, Lisbon, and Rome municipalities will exchange with local initiatives from the UK, Spain, and Belgium. (Moderated by Levente Polyák and Daniella Patti - Eutropian)
How inclusiveness can be carried out in practice? What kind of implications does it have for the community? Showing on the examples of business canvasses the discussion will be practice-oriented, including the experience from the Hof Praedikow co-housing cooperative and the Symbiosis SON initiative. Speakers: Rolf Novy-Huy, Stiftung trias and Joep de Roo, Eurodite.
Formal and informal partnerships (Moderated by Hanna Szemző & Andrea Tönkő, Metropolitan Research Institute)
The first workshop will focus on understanding the “nuts and bolts” of cooperation between partnerships of various institutional degrees. Can they be operational, are there small tricks to employ or traps to avoid? Drawing on Urbact’s REFILL experience as well the work of ACT in Rome and the Pomáz heritage site in Hungary, a discussion and exchange of ideas is foreseen, involving all participants
The role of SMEs in adaptive reuse (Moderated by Hanne van Gils, Ghent University)
The second workshop analyses the possible roles SMEs can have in supporting/accelerating adaptive heritage reuse processes. It does so through enlarging the usual economic perspective, putting the circular economy and environmental principles into the centre of attention. It does so with the help of Pietro Elisei (Urbasofia), Miss Miyagi Placemaking, and the Praga Lab in Warsaw.
