ABOUT ACPCS >
- Established in 2005, the program has provided a rare opportunity to share our knowledge and experiences on the understanding and conservation of cultural heritage. 73 Asian fellows from 18 countries(2014) such as China, India, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Bhutan, Indonesia, Vietnam, Thailand, Cambodia, Mongolia, Nepal, Myanmar, Afghanistan, had completed our program.
The program started in the field of conservation science and extended its research field into intangible heritage and traditional artifacts in 2009. The research on architectural heritage is included in 2010 and archaeology in 2014 as well.
On-site Technical Training Program, the OTTP was launched in 2013 as a hands-on practice to build regional capacity of conservators in Asia. The program dispatch conservation experts to target countries in need of help. Metal conservation, stone conservation, textile conservation and photographing course were held every twice a year in Mongolia, Myanmar, Bhutan and Sri Lanka so far. The course is composed of practical lectures and concrete practice so that the participants can efficiently establish proper knowledge and skills for their daily practice of work.
