Everyday Cultural Landscapes

By: Zahra Hussain & Fatima Hussain

With the surge of development in the form of road linkages and increased tourism, social-cultural and ecological scape in Laspur is at risk of being transformed in an un-sustainable manner. While the region embraces this development, it is important to highlight that sustainable socio-environmental management needs to be contextualized for a shared understanding of culture and nature. This workshop aims to build a repository of indigenous practices and patterns of Laspur Valley in order to analyze how resilient these practices are and how can these be improvised to respond better to the transforming conditions and cultural heritage management.
