The programme is designed to provide undergraduate students with a comprehensive view of the basic aspects of conservation and museology. Students will become familiar with Czech legislation and basic terminology of these fields. The lectures will give students the necessary overview of the institutional structure of the Czech state heritage care and will help them to navigate the legal and disciplinary regulations dealing with the protection of tangible cultural heritage at the national and international level. After completing the lectures, students will gain an idea of the process of negotiating the restoration of a cultural monument, including restoration intervention. They will learn how museum institutions function, including the processes of exhibition planning, curation and collections management. The program is complemented by hands-on activities that will give students deeper insight into the field.
