The renowned Madrid-based foundation Factum Arte presented a talk at Project Space Art Jameel titled Traditional and Digital Artisans Meet, exploring the ways in which new technologies are being used in both architectural conservation and contemporary art. By using the Stoppelaere House in Egypt as a case study in technology transfer, training and non-invasive means for preservation, Co-founder and Director of Factum Arte, Adam Lowe, explored the importance of sustainable tourism and touched on how Factum Arte became innovators in the field of heritage management. More recently, in collaboration with Art Jameel, members of the Factum Foundation team spent time training students at the Jameel House of Traditional Arts / Jeddah techniques in scanning and documenting the architectural heritage of Al-Balad, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
