On the 29 April, 2023, Mr. Guillaume Dubuis,
the founder of DUALEST S.A.S. Groupe, Ms. Sophie Lafranchi, Director for
Development, and Pascal Rieunier, Director General of Salisbury Archéologie
paid an official visit to the Headquarters of the International Institute for
Central Asian Studies (IICAS).
Special focus in the course of the conversation
was made to the museum operations, building capacity and overall improvement of
professional practices and approaches in Uzbekistan and Central Asia. The need
for appropriate treatment of incredibly valuable artefacts, their presentation
and interpretation and improved visitor experience are essential and the demand
for such an advancement is ever increasing.
Dr. Voyakin and Mr. Feyzulayev made a short
overview of the most relevant regional activities, where the highlight was made
on the use of modern technologies and in particular digitization of artefacts,
arrangement of archaeological parks, which has been in the focus of academic
community and authorities in the past years. Relevant initiatives of the IICAS’
partner institutions were mentioned as well. One of the most notable achievements
was the launch of a 1-year Master program on Museum Studies by the “Silk Road”
International University of Tourism and Cultural Heritage in 2021.
The parties agreed that further coordination is
needed to open a wider discussion with experts and practitioners, museum
administrations and authorities.
