From 19 to 21 September, 2013, the annual Best in Heritage Conference, patronised by ICOM, will be held in the renaissance city core of Dubrovnik, Croatia, a UNESCO World heritage site.
The Best in Heritage is an annual survey of award-winning museum, heritage and conservation projects. Organised in partnership with Europa Nostra and under special patronage of International Council of Museums, it is supported by The City of Dubrovnik and Croatian Ministry of Culture.
The conference offers an overview of the best from the field of museums and heritage. Twenty-four projects awarded in 2012 from all over the world will present their success stories. Presenters will elaborate on the creative and innovative approach which earned them an award, will interact with the audience and take part in moderated discussions.
Participants have the opportunity to get inspired by many acclaimed experts and acquire insight into contemporary trends and tendencies. The gathering is ideal for networking, establishing contacts and discussing potential collaborations since the programme features rich social and cultural content.
Supplementary segments to the main event include a pre-conference event “eCultValue Dialogue Day”, taking place on 19th September at Art Gallery Dubrovnik and “Global Heritage Forum” taking place on 20th September at Theatre “Marin Držić”.
The full programme of the Conference is available online and registrations are open on the dedicated website.
