Malta Libraries' lecture series 'Discoveries from the Past: Promoting Research Findings' at the National Library of Malta continues in 2020 with 'Managing and Interpreting Living Religious Heritage: Challenges and Solutions' - a lecture by Maria Grazia Cassar (M.A. in Cultural Heritage Management).
In this lecture, Ms. Cassar will be discussing the insights obtained in research carried out at six living religious heritage sites in Malta; including the challenges, such as the security of the artefacts within the church, the impact of high visitor numbers, as well as reactions by the visitors to the site and its religious significance. Based on the results obtained, a number of recommendations are made for best practice at living religious heritage sites, aimed at protecting their multiple values, whist informing good management practices.
These lectures are coordinated by Maroma Camilleri and Mevrick Spiteri and earmarked to promote and encourage the importance of research for the educational and cultural field. This session in particular is being organised in collaboration with the Department of Conservation and Built Heritage of the University of Malta.
This lecture will be held on Wednesday 15 January 2020 at 18:30 at the National Library, Valletta. All lectures in the series are free and open to the public. For any queries email firstname.lastname@example.org.
