We are thrilled to announce that the CRM (Cultural Resource Management) Symposium is organized for the first time to celebrate the establishment of CRM International Network. The event is jointly hosted by the Institut Teknologi Bandung (ITB) and the National Museum of Japanese History (NMJH).

This time in 2021, the CRM Symposium focuses on exploring the process and measures of managing cultural resources during crises. Human-beings have suffered a number of inevitable natural disasters including earthquakes, floods, landslides, etc., conflicts and other social problems such as aging and decreasing population, and what we are facing right now, pandemics of disease. During these crises, our cultural resources (both tangible and intangible) are also in danger of being lost because of the physical damages and/or collapse of communities and related systems. Each time it happens, we have innovated new ideas and technology to overcome current issues and make provision for the uncertainties in the future.

The symposium this year is going to be a fruitful opportunity for us to share ideas and research outcomes from various study fields such as digital humanities, art and design research, museum studies, education, heritage preservation, etc. We believe it would lead us to find clues to preservation and utilization of cultural resources in Asia and other parts of the world.

This lab was created as an effort to develop design methods and practices, which on one hand are based on technological developments, and on the other hand are also based on developments in social, cultural and political issues and theories. DE:Lab is a research center that is open to researchers from inside and outside ITB, as well as undergraduate and postgraduate students, to cultivate and develop design and ethnographic methods in their respective research. DE:Lab conducts various research activities on a regular basis, and seeks to implement them to the public with an emphasis on collaboration in the academic community, private sectors, and government.
