Webinar ‘Mega-events in heritage-rich cities: From research to principles and policy recommendations’

Mega-events have been changing their relationship with the city, now more commonly using existing infrastructures and facilities. In Europe and other parts of the world, this may put historic city centres and broader heritage assets under stress. How can cities rich in culture host mega-events without putting their own heritage at risk? How can mega-events become effective ways to promote and protect tangible and intangible heritage?

The webinar taking place on Thursday 8 July 2021 at 11:00 – 15:30 CEST will introduce and launch the “Charter for Mega-events in Heritage-rich Cities” that responds to these questions. The Charter derives from the HOMEE research project that investigated case studies across Europe and involved organizations, experts and professionals in the field.

During the webinar sessions, leading international experts and policy-makers will discuss the Charter and engage with current and future challenges regarding mega-events, heritage and the city. Our Secretary General Sneška Quaedvlieg – Mihailović is among the speakers.

The webinar is part of the JPI Cultural Heritage funded project “HOMEE: Heritage Opportunities/threats within Mega-Events in Europe”.
