Abstract

Throughout Thailand and the world, heritage sites are under threat. To alleviate this, our project’s goal was to increase the protection heritage sites in Thailand attain. Initially, we aimed to create a resource for heritage site owners to understand and apply for official recognition by the Department of Fine Arts (DFA). We interviewed conservation organizations, the DFA, and heritage site owners and found that there exist misconceptions surrounding the DFA. Our goal expanded to include developing methods to alleviate this through increased transparency, communication, and protections.
