IAASF Conference  2024 – Developing Resilience for the Protection of Cultural Venues

For this year’s event, we want to explore the development of resilience in the cultural sector and how it impacts infrastructure, transportation, training, operational protection, protesters and other activities. The more we can address resilience in the cultural heritage sectors the more robust our protective approach will be to ensure cultural assets are around for future generations.
