The purpose of NEARCHing Factory is...

… to re-think the practice of archaeology (i.e. archaeological as a way of life and of making a living) in order to build, in collaboration with others, a process for the creation of new opportunities to sustain archaeological activity


To regenerate the conditions for the professional practice of archaeology


To incorporate new types of activity into the practice of archaeology


To align the archaeological profession with social demands regarding the use of Heritage


To anticipate what needs to be changed in order to make all of the above possible

Who is it for?

We are looking for people who are willing to unlearn what they know, to listen to the experiences of others, to learn from others, to imagine, to work and to build


What are we going to talk about?


San Martín Pinario










English will be the official language; there will be no simultaneous translation, but (if necessary) we will create working opportunities in other languages so that everyone can express themselves.
