It will also be the opportunity to give a voice to the various stakeholders: owners, policy makers, academics, experts and cultural innovators. The day will provide numerous opportunities to network and meet stakeholders.
Lucas JAHIER, President of the European Economic and Social Committee, will be a keynote speaker on the importance of Cultural Heritage in Europe. A better understanding of the sector is crucial to unleash its potential.
Tamas SZUCS, Director for Culture and Creativity, DG Education and Culture, European Commission will present the views of the European Commission on the future strategy for EU cultural heritage and reflect on the policy recommendations of the Study.
Lejla HADZIC, Executive Director of Cultural Heritage without Borders Albania, will be part of the panel discussing the impact of historic houses in Europe. “Dealing with the complexities of cultural heritage issues is a choice I made for my life.”
Our tangible and intangible heritage is the glue which keeps all of us, Europeans, together for peace, solidarity, creativity and economic dynamism. Craftsmen and restorers of cultural heritage are the hands which make our culture live and step into the future. Monuments, pieces of art, design objects, fashion, interior design, musical instruments, publishing… in every corner of our life a specific knowhow is at work! (Mad’in Europe)
