The last 10th -11th of May REACH celebrated its Opening Conference in Budapest with a remarkable participation: 152 attendees, 16 videos and 35 posters presented.
High-level experts discussed and compared good examples of participatory processes and researches facing the theme of “Resilient Cultural Heritage and Communities in Europe”.
The conference was organized by ELTE, Eötvös Loránd University, kindly hosted by the Hungarian National Museum.
During the 2 days programme, 32 speakers interchanged in the presentation of projects, researches and studies;
interesting debates and discussions enriched the topics of the four REACH project pilots on minority, rural, small towns and institutional heritage.
Resilient and participation in cultural heritage was the main theme of the round table and the world café during which attendees and participants shared experiences, knowledges and best practices. The outcomes of the meetings will be included in a manifesto containing the main principles of REACH.
In parallel, the Hungarian National Archives in partnership with Europeana Foundation run a collection day: during the conference everyone was invited to share his/her personal and family’s migration story, contributing to paint a bigger picture of European migration movements over the last few centuries.
