On 31 January, CulturalBase, a platform for cultural heritage and European identities, held a policy seminar in Brussels, Belgium. The seminar provided an opportunity for academic stakeholders and European professionals who belong to CulturalBase to discuss cultural heritage policies to help Europe better address current challenges such as the economic crisis and xenophobia, among others. The outcome of the joint session was a raft of proposals that CulturalBase will draw on to design the European Year of Cultural Heritage 2018. More information on these proposals will be available soon on the platform website.
The policy seminar was organized by CulturalBase, in cooperation with Culture Action Europe and Bozar. CulturalBase is run by a consortium of European partners including Interarts, and funded by Horizon 2020.
