Since the early 20th century, there has been a growing need to identify and measure the value of cultural heritage; the “experts” are no longer perceived as the only ones deciding on an artefact’s heritage value. Involving the local community makes it possible to grasp the potential social value of the assessed object.
This project focuses on religious artefacts and the value of stakeholders’ participation. It presents the possible new knowledge implied in the democratisation of decision-making.
The project presents a case study completed by local church communities about the collections of paintings with the “The Passion Clock” theme.
