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
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.
NEARCHing Factory will be at the EAA Conference in Maastricht!
The main ideas arising from NEARCHing Factory will be presented there in order to be discussed with a broader audience of people that did not participate in the factory. A working document will be circulated beforehand; please participate in the discussion of the 339 session “Creating new scenarios for Archaeology: NEARCHing Factory reloaded”
