Unit 6: Heritage of Sites with Painful Pasts

  1. We started our work by trying to find the connections in our own group. We come from several countries; Latvia, Lithuania, Indonesia, India, Nepal, Mexico, Switzerland and the UK. We worked in groups of three and drew three symbols that represented our own selves. Then we shared these, and found the connections. Our Group has m any shared values, and we found common hopes and values around freedom, creativity, curiousity and respect for the world. These values have underpinned our approach to work.
    We started by dividing our documentation and resaerch process into 4 areas; the Tragedy Site, the Community around the site, the city and the processes of interpretation and existing heritage trails. All of these form the identity, actual and potential, of Bhopal.
