19th International Summer School Youth and Heritage

WHAT IS ISSYH?

The International Summer School Youth and Heritage is an advanced educational platform intended to complement university syllabi. The curriculum is a unique combination of practical and theoretical learning methods, performed in Sarajevo, Mostar, and Stolac – historic Bosnian cities which suffered extensive damage during the early 1990s war. Since the end of the war, these cities have been a focus of post-war heritage reconstruction and social recovery. This environment provides students with personal experience of working and living in a context where heritage reconstruction is a factor of the necessarily long-term process of healing societal and cultural trauma. Since its inception, the Summer School programme has thus focused on promoting understanding and the conservation of significant expressions of tangible and intangible cultural heritage within a post-traumatic context.
