THE BEST IN HERITAGE: Projects of Influence

Dubrovnik, Croatia, 28-30 September 2017

As a result of the long and devoted work of dozens of experts and professional juries, more than 40 major award schemes from around the world announced some 300 prize-winning museum, heritage and conservation projects in 2016. At The Best in Heritage conference, the featured, handpicked selection of the most innovative and inspiring candidates from this accumulation of quality will represent a balanced variety of best practices.

The gathering will consist of two events: IMAGINES, a one day event where multimedia and new technology achievements will be presented; and the core event, with its packed two-day schedule. Over 40 projects from China, the United States, Japan, India, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Russia and Europe will be presented. The audience, moderators-judges, and the keynote speakers will vote for “The Project of Influence 2017”, for both parts of the programme.

The conference is organised in partnership with EUROPA NOSTRA & the Endowment Fund of ICOM, with the local partnership of Dubrovnik Museums, the support of the City of Dubrovnik and Ministry of Culture of Croatia, and with sponsorship from Meyvaert Glass Engineering.

All ICOM members can register with reduced conference fees.
