Cultural heritage and municipalities. Towards efficient managment

On November 16, at the National Gallery of Art, the Ministry of Culture organizes the conference "Cultural heritage and the municipality. Towards efficient management“, in which experts from Norway, Slovakia and Estonia will share their experience of successful cultural heritage protection and management practices. The event is intended for local authorities and representatives of the institutions responsible for cultural heritage and the general public.

The public policy analyst and evaluator Darius Žeruolis will review the current situation in Lithuania, providing insights on the cultural habits of the Lithuanian people, the incentive system applied and investment in the protection of cultural heritage, based on the results of research carried out in 2014-2017.

Responding to the current challenges, we will continue by moving on to presentations of foreign practises that were based on solving similar challenges. Representatives of Norway and Poland will present a joint project called "Home", which has led municipalities to view the heritage objects as resources that can make a significant contribution to local development and to create better opportunities for the local community. A recent study of the economic impact of cultural heritage in Norway will also be presented, which will help to better understand the importance of investing in cultural heritage.

The example of "Pro Monumenta", the project implemented in Slovakia, will disclose how invetments in prevention, monitoring and consultancy on the management of heritage objects, ensures long-term and sustainable protection of the cultural heritage, helping to avoid costly management work in the future.

The conference will also present the heritage conservation measures being implemented in Tallinn, which do not require a lot of money, are simple and make significant changes. Initiatives such as the establishment of a Sustainable Renovation and Information Center (SRIK), "facade passports" and other initiatives help foster historical urban areas and change the attitude of the population towards the living environment.

The event will be held in English with simultaneous translation into the Lithuanian language. The registration form can be found here >>> Registration is complete!
