“OUR HERITAGE: WHERE THE PAST MEETS THE FUTURE”. European Year of Cultural Heritage 2018
The purpose behind this annual programme is to increase the impact of cultural heritage on economy and social developments in general, as well as to strengthen the position of European culture in the international context. Furthermore, such an insistence on the recognition of the significance of culture at the same time represents a powerful statement against the current destruction of cultural heritage in the Middle East.
Since the essential prerequisite for the long-term preservation of cultural heritage is our active engagement with it, a wide array of events and activities that will be taking place throughout 2018 as part of this initiative will try to bring the wider public as close as possible to all kinds of cultural content, particularly targeting the younger population.
