NIT Urban Heritage Lab is an initiative of the Netherlands Institute in Turkey that investigates the role of tangible and intangible cultural heritage in achieving inclusive, circular, and sustainable cities. The third edition of the Urban Heritage Lab Autumn Course is organized by the Netherlands Institute in Turkey (NIT), in collaboration with Middle East Technical University (METU), Cultural Heritage Agency of the Netherlands (RCE), LDE Centre for Global Heritage and Development, and with the support of the Netherlands Consulate-General in Istanbul.

The course will spotlight archaeological heritage in urban contexts and explore a series of topical issues, including: How can archaeological heritage in urban settings contribute to presenting the stories of a city and its inhabitants? Given the nature of archaeological remains (often underfoot, fragmented, limited to small exposures, disconnected from present-day communities, obstructing rather than enabling present-day urban movement), what are the specific challenges of archaeological heritage in this respect? What are the best strategies for preservation, display and public engagement? Can archaeological heritage be a driver for sustainable urban development in a time of climate crisis?
