European Year of Cultural Heritage - Forum on International Dimension


The Forum on the International Dimension of the European Year of Cultural Heritage (EYCH) 2018, will take place in Brussels on 23 April, organized by the Cultural Diplomacy Platform. The Forum will look at the main themes of the 2018 EYCH from an international perspective.

The global cultural landscape has changed rapidly over the last few decades and demand for inter-cultural cooperation and dialogue has increased. Cultural Heritage, a masterpiece of human genius, creativity and cultures, is more than ever at the heart of global challenges and perspectives worldwide. The Forum will be a unique opportunity for an exchange of knowledge, expertise and latest cultural heritage approaches and strategies, among high-level speakers from Europe and EU’s partner countries. Panel sessions will address the protection of cultural heritage at risk, engagement and participatory governance and innovation in cultural heritage.

Join the discussion with the EU’s partners! More information on the programme and the panelists soon on this website and Facebook & Twitter 

Registration to be open towards the end of February on the Cultural Diplomacy Platform website. The Cultural Diplomacy Platform (launched by the Service for Foreign Policy Instruments of the European Commission) supports the EU institutions in the implementation of a new ‘EU Strategy for international cultural relations’.
