This conference will offer an international exchange of best practices of participatory governance of cultural heritage. It will present real-life projects by speakers with first-hand experiences and coming from different backgrounds. The focus is mainly on built heritage, taking into account successful examples of participation in archaeology and the larger areas of historic built environment and cultural landscapes.
The aim of the conference is to highlight the advantages (but also disadvantages) of participatory governance, to exchange experiences and to offer advice – including dos and don’ts – for the management of future participative heritage initiatives.
The invitation is for all parties and individuals across Europe who take an interest in this subject. The intended participants of the conference are those who are involved in (future) built heritage projects based on participatory governance: policy makers, local, regional and national public authorities, owners and managers of built heritage, heritage professionals, heritage researchers, planners and architects. Participation is free. The conference will be held in English. Participants are invited to actively participate in workshops. Poster presentations are welcome. A book corner will be installed where speakers and participants can present relevant publications.
