Boris Erg is the Director of IUCN Regional Office for Eastern Europe and Central Asia (IUCN ECARO). He is an expert in nature conservation, protected area management, transboundary conservation and multi-stakeholder processes.
Matteo Rosati is assigned to the Culture Unit of the UNESCO Regional Bureau for Science and Culture in Europe. He collaborates on issues ranging from safeguarding cultural heritage to the diversity of cultural expression.
Taja Vovk van Gaal is the Creative Director of the House of European History, Historian and Sociologist and Museum Advisor. Most of her working life she has spent as a curator for contemporary history, a museum curator and a manager in culture. She has been an author/curator of many exhibitions and articles, an author/manager of different projects, a member of the board of many professional organisations, both national and international.
Working from 2011 till 2017 as the Academic Project Leader responsible for the content and management for the creation of the House of European History, a newly opened history museum in Brussels, remains the biggest challenge in her career – so far. After the successful opening of the museum in May 2017, she has taken a position as the Creative Director of the House of European History.
Participants from all over Europe and beyond will offer more than 40 workshops and presentations. In selecting what is most interesting for you, you will always be able to choose from at least three parallel sessions.
A range of intensive study visits allow delegates to explore in depth the culture of the host country. Participants can be sure that they will see many different sites in Bosnia and Hercegovina, learn about their background and get lots of ideas about how to interpret their own heritage for both visitors and residents when they return home.
In addition to this, the conference programme will offer many opportunities for exchanging experiences and opinions during the Market of Ideas and during our evening meals – all these events bring interpreters to life.
MARKET OF IDEAS
You are invited to present posters and to use the speakers‘ corner during our Market of Ideas. The programme for this will emerge from the conference in order to offer more opportunities for exchange, to search for partners and to discuss future projects.
Join us to be part of it!
