Save the date! IMP Concluding Symposium (26.02.2020 - Brussels)

When? Wednesday, February 26, 2020

Where? Brussels, Belgium

Over the past three years, the Intangible Cultural Heritage and Museums Project (IMP) has gathered a rich multitude of museum professionals, heritage communities, academics, policy makers and networking actors, and we travelled to The Netherlands, Italy, Switzerland, France and Belgium in order to discover the myriad of ways in which practices of intangible cultural heritage are being incorporated in museum work.

On February 26, 2020 IMP will host its Concluding Symposium in Brussels (BE):
