While looking forward to our events in Prague and Inverness, we also need to think what to do in 2018. We therefore send this call to all our members asking for proposals to organise our next Interpret Europe Conference
2018 will be the European Year of Cultural Heritage. We would like to use this occasion to highlight the relevance of heritage interpretation all over Europe. Our conference shall take place in spring and it shall be planned to ensure it is accessible for members from countries with lower income. If you took part in one of our recent conferences in Krakow or in Mechelen, you know that IE Conferences consist of a lively mix of presentations, workshops and study visits and offer space for a lot of participation from many of our members.
Organising a conference for Interpret Europe means some work, but if it is done in the right way, it might not only increase the reputation but could also help to raise an income for the organising partner in the host country.
If you have some experience in organising events, if you could imagine assembling a dedicated conference team, and if you feel you would like to give it a try, please don’t hesitate to send a brief letter of interest to [email protected], explaining your interest and including your initial suggestions for:
- an appealing conference theme
- a place and venue for about 200 participants
- possible destinations for study visits
- potential supporting partners in the host country.
You should submit your letter by 30 April 2017 and we will then come back to you to discuss together whether to develop an outline and what further information would be needed to take your idea forward.
