The European Union and the Council of Europe have declared 2018 to be the European Year of Cultural Heritage - saying
“The ideals, principles and values embedded in the European cultural heritage constitute a shared source of remembrance, understanding, identity, dialogue, cohesion and creativity for Europe. “
“The European Year of Cultural Heritage will offer opportunities for European citizens to better understand the present through a richer and shared interpretation of the past. It will stimulate a better evaluation of the social and economic benefits of cultural heritage and of its contribution to economic growth and social cohesion.”

A first workshop took place in Barcelona on January 13th-14th 2017
