The Best in Heritage
25 September - 27 September
Annual, global conference featuring award-winning museum, heritage and conservation projects
25 – 27 SEPTEMBER 2019
Presenting a comprehensive, global overview of best practices, this year’s The Best in Heritage will feature 42 museum, heritage and conservation projects that have been awarded in the previous year.
The three-day gathering will consist of two events – IMAGINES, presenting new technologies and multimedia laureates, and the core programme, where institutional and large scale projects take the stage. Each of the events will start with a Keynote address by the 2018 “Project of Influence” winner: Historic Royal Palaces from the United Kingdom, represented by their creative producer Tim Powell, and Textile Museum Tilburg from the Netherlands, represented by the museum’s director Errol van de Werdt, respectively.
Every year the conference culminates by proclaiming two winners of the “Project of Influence” award – those which by their excellence and impressive presentation are esteemed as innovators with a lasting impact. The votes for the award are cast by an international audience comprised of professionals, together with a group of expert moderators which, together with last year’s laureates, form the Jury.
The Best in Heritage is organised in partnership with Europa Nostra (with support of Creative Europe programme) and ICOM (International Council of Museums), is under patronage of The City of Dubrovnik, Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Croatia, and sponsored by Meyvaert Glass Engineering and Exponatec Cologne. The local partner is Dubrovnik Museums.
