As heritage professionals we are responsible for conserving generations of tangible and intangible knowledge, for future generations to learn from and enjoy. We are also responsible for listening and questioning: whose heritage are we protecting? What biases do we hold that prevent us from promoting heritage in an equitable and inclusive manner? I love the ways in which being a conservation architect makes me question the footprint I leave on this planet.
