Mountain Panorama – International Cultural Heritage Conference

Zakopane, Poland
From: 09.06.2022 to: 12.06.2022

Within the Framework of the International Year of Sustainable Mountain Development 2022, the Tatra Museum in Zakopane, Poland, in association with the Mountain Partnership and the International Mountain Museums Alliance, are organizing the international conference “Mountain Panorama – International Cultural Heritage Conference”, to be held in Zakopane on 9-12 June 2022.

Mountains play an essential role in all areas of life on Earth – from hosting important biodiversity to being the home of rich traditions and cultures. They constitute a separate ‘world’ to be valued, conserved and promoted. Mountains are the home of countless plant and animal species as well as over a billion people globally. Because of this, mountains hold significant cultural value for the heritage of local communities. The aim of this conference is to discuss the revaluation and conservation of this immense tangible and intangible heritage, to provide a true panorama of mountain areas.

The conference will be curated by Aldo Audisio, International Projects Expert; Rosalaura Romeo, Mountain Partnership Secretariat ; and Anna Wende-Surmiak, Director, Tatra Museum.

The scientific board includes:

  • Dorota Folga-Januszewska (Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw)
  • Jan Święch (Jagellonian University)
  • Giovanni Kezich (Trentino Ethnographic Museums Network)
  • Bernard Germain (Montagne&Alpiniste Magazine)
