International Conference „The Best in Heritage 2018“ (Dubrovnik, 26 - 28 September 2018)

Projects of Influence
26-28 September, Dubrovnik, Croatia

As the award-giving programmes around the world announced their laureates category by category in 2017, the Best in Heritage diligently collected all the information and generated the annual list of the best practices in the field of museums, heritage and conservation. Out of some 300 prize-winners from 45 award schemes, the Best in Heritage Advisory Board approved a selection of the most innovative and advanced candidates, which were invited to the 2018 conference in Dubrovnik. Featuring altogether 42 presentations of a wide scope of laureates coming from 4 continents, the conference will, for the 17th time, bring authors of most exceptional achievements together with the professional audience and the public. The gathering will start with the IMAGINES event, which focuses on the use of New Technologies and Multimedia, and will feature Q&A sessions, 2 keynotes and a “Spotlight” lecture following the theme of 2018 as the European Year of Cultural Heritage. In addition to having an ideal setting for networking with colleagues from all over the globe, the conference will have an abundance of cultural, social and gastronomic events accompanying the programme. The moderators, last year winners and the audience will act as a Jury and vote for a project with a truly change-making potential for each of the two events: “The Project of Influence” for the year 2018.

The conference, organised in partnership with Europa Nostra (with the support of the Creative Europe programme) and the ICOM (International Council of Museums), is under the auspices  of the City of Dubrovnik, the Ministry of Culture of Republic of Croatia, supported by the United States Embassy in Croatia and sponsored by Meyvaert Glass Engineering. The local partner is Dubrovnik Museums.
