In order to enrich scientific discussions, to promote the discovery of Montreal’s urban and cultural environment and its particular challenges in the field of heritage, and to support new partnership in research and training, the five days of the conference include numerous activities of inquiry and dialogue in various areas linked to industrial heritage, as architecture, urban planning, gastronomy, music, cinema, etc. Well-known guest speakers will also be heard.
The 2021 TICCIH congress in Montreal is designed to perpetuate and renew research and exchanges on less-discussed areas of industrial heritage, by addressing the identity of industrial civilization from the angle of its representations, culture, territories, of its inheritance (positive or negative) and of their documentation and development.
