KÖME – Association of Cultural Heritage Managers is a community of people working in heritage-related fields in Hungary. The association was founded in 2012 by alumni of iASK – Institute of Advanced Studies Kőszeg who saw the need for independent, bottom-up platforms for cultural and natural heritage.
