• Annual Meeting - Ireland
  • Old City of Bern, Switzerland

The 11th EHHF Annual Meeting will be held in Bern, 18-20 May 2016. It is organised by the Swiss Federal Office of Culture in collaboration with EHHF and Troika partners. The Heads will be invited to reflect on the current change happening in the cultural heritage sector, illustrated by the following statement:

«Conservation is increasingly geared towards preserving and enhancing a whole cultural landscape rather than an isolated site, and also becoming more people-centred. Old approaches sought to protect heritage by isolating it from daily life. New approaches focus on making it fully part of the local community. Sites are given a second life and meaning that speak to contemporary needs and concerns.» European Commission, “Towards an integrated approach to cultural heritage for Europe”, Brussels 22.7.2014 

Attendance is strictly by invitation only.
