Best in Heritage with IMAGINES

Share

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 then 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.
