Heritage Preservation Focus on “TECH”: Technology Empowering Cultural Heritage
Technology & preservation will be the key focus at the 2nd Pacific Preservation Summit scheduled for May 24-26, 2022 at the Guam Museum and various locations in Hagatña, to include site tours to cultural sites around the island. The theme for the three-day summit is “Technology Empowering Cultural Heritage” or “TECH2022” which was chosen for participants to discuss the impact of available technology in preserving our region’s historic sites, treasures, and stories so that our communities can continue to tell the stories of our Pacific heritage.
The Summit coordinators, Guam Preservation Trust, with funding support from the Department of Interior Office of Insular Affairs, is making this event open and free to the public in an effort to promote historic preservation as a public responsibility. Organizers are inviting the Pacific community to engage, discuss and teach one another islander solutions and technology to both advocate and strengthen preservation work to safeguard our Pacific heritage and way of life.
