IE Conference: Fostering heritage communities, Haapsalu

Heritage communities are a cornerstone of the Council of Europe’s Faro Convention. But how do heritage sites actually become meaningful for everyone? What triggers volunteer engagement and what boosts someone’s sense of fulfilment?

People are better connected to heritage when they are actively involved as co-creators of interpretation. This includes lively debate and sometimes dealing with controversial opinions as to why that heritage is meaningful. Consultation broadens consideration about different narratives which, in turn, helps establish practices that accommodate the values people attach to heritage.

Join the IE conference in Estonia on 8-11 May 2020 for a packed programme of inspiring speeches, workshops, presentations and study visits, when you will explore how interpretation can bring heritage communities to life.

The deadline for the delivery of papers is 15 April 2020.
