Heritage and Identity will be the theme of the next Interpret Europe Conference taking place from 23 to 26 March 2018 in Kőszeg, Hungary, close to the Austrian border. The Hungarian Association of Cultural Heritage Managers (KÖME) was granted the possibility to be the main organiser of the event. This is the first time a Hungarian member can invite international creative experts to home ground within this framework.
The event will be an official part of the European Year of Cultural Heritage, with some 150-200 guests from all over the world.
The 3-day gathering will feature 85 workshops and presentations held by professionals from 30 countries. Besides this, the programme offers a variety of cultural and gastronomic offers, walks and 13 study visits to significant sites of cultural and natural heritage in Hungary. Destinations will include among others different sites within the city of Kőszeg, the border-crossing Fertő / Neusiedlersee Cultural Landscape (a UNESCO World Heritage Site), Eszterháza, the ‘Hungarian Versailles’, which belonged to one of the most famous landowning families of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, and the Pan-European Picnic Park where the Iron Curtain was first lifted in 1989. The conference will be a border-crossing event starting with a pre-conference tour in Vienna and ending with post-conference tour in Budapest.
