About the Program
Cultural heritage sites, museums, libraries, and collections are vital to our interpretation of the past, our understanding of our place in the world, and our appreciation of the rich diversity of the human experience. Technological innovations are enabling breakthroughs in conservation, facilitating greater access to collections, and uncovering previously unrecognized connections.
Join us for an enlightening exploration of groundbreaking work being done at Yale and beyond to preserve the world’s treasures while achieving greater democratization in the management of collections, thereby opening them up to a wider audience, inviting diverse viewpoints, and reshaping the future of cultural institutions.
