SEAS – PAKISTAN
The Center for Archaeological and Environmental Research is multidisciplinary research institution, focusing on analytical studies of art and archaeological material, improving existing, and developing new conservation methods, for different mediums and objects. It is emphasizing the need of documentation of material culture and developing international liaison in related activities.
Through its collaborative activities the Center aims at developing wider base for assistance, to the similar public sector or privately owned institutions and organizations in related fields.
The national legislations have required and put almost unmanageable burden of protecting and preserving physical heritage, on the public sector management, which has been further hit by financial cuts, as well as lack of human resource development means/program.
The Center for Archaeological and Environmental Research is meant to help in fulfilling some of the pressing needs in management of our rich but often neglected cultural heritage, through its programs in research, conservations, trainings, seminars, exhibitions and publications.
The Center is supported mainly by SEAS, a volunteer citizen organization, which is working since 1989, aiming at and with a moto of ‘preserve heritage’, a much applauded slogan, but very complicated when it comes to practice. As is known to every one, conservation is technical activity involving huge expenditures.
The Center has a Regents Committee, that offers advices for its plans and projects, and it is run by the Board of Directors, two of which are Permanent, responsible for its management and activities.
It is housed in a permanent Campus of its own, not far from the centre of city, offering many occasions of interaction and activity.
