EYCH logoThe IHBC’s 2018 Annual School, ‘Our Shared Heritage’ has joined to the formal listing of UK events for the 2018 European Year of Cultural Heritage (EYCH), while non-IHBC members can get regular updates on School news via our NewsBlogs trial HERE

IHBC Director Seán O’Reilly said: ‘The IHBC is delighted to have this formal recognition of the School as our main contribution to the 2018 European Year of Cultural Heritage.’

‘Our School focusses on ‘sharing’ experiences, roles and responsibilities as part of any progressive heritage resource management strategy.  The School’s innovative approach to shared heritage underpins both inclusive engagement and sustainable protection, themes that map directly to the themes of the European Year of Cultural Heritage.’

IHBC Northern Ireland Branch Chair and lead organizer Andrew McClelland said: ‘The School’s keynote speakers represent well the blend of local and international content that will pervade the programme.’

‘Bill Drummond, Scottish artist and art provocateur, and Finnish conservation architect and adviser Jukka Jokilehto, are both recognised internationally for the kind of new thinking on sharing heritage that conservation needs now more than ever, both to build capacity and to enhance standards.’

‘We have much more to announce in our School plans, but already I hope anyone interested in the heritage of places – not least delegates from all across Europe and beyond – will make Belfast a centre for their European Year of Cultural Heritage in 2018.’
