Replicas in museum and heritage contexts: co-production of guidance

Replicas in museum and heritage contexts: co-production of guidance

This half-day workshop is organised by the University of Stirling in partnership with National Museums Scotland (NMS) and ICOMOS UK. The aim is that researchers and practitioners co-produce a draft of joined-up cross-sector guidance for working with replicas that is informed by the latest research on replicas and will ‘speak’ to the needs of both the museum and heritage sectors.

Some ideas for what the guidance should contain will have emerged from a SGSAH Heritage Hub workshop the previous day, which brought students and practitioners together. We need to discuss ‘ownership’ of this guidance, and practical issues such as how to consult further and how to best disseminate the final guidance. This event is for invited practitioners only, who are expected to have also attended the SGSAH Heritage Hub.
