European Heritage Days 2018 in Croatia

This year the event of European Heritage Days in Croatia will traditionally take place from 20th September to 10th October 2018. The theme of this year’s EHD is in the frame of the European Year of Cultural Heritage: The Art of Sharing. The aim of the European Year of Cultural Heritage is to encourage more people to discover and engage with Europe's cultural heritage, and to reinforce a sense of belonging to a common European space.
Over 90 events will be organized all over the country by many institutions, local communities and companies in coordination with the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Croatia.
The main events will start on 20th September 2018 with the opening event of the exhibition entitled: „In Service of Heritage Visualization“ in the Klovićevi dvori Gallery in Zagreb. The exhibition aims to highlight the cross section of the opus of the most distinguished professional photographers of the national conservation service of the second part of the 20th century in Croatia. The exhibition is also in a way a reminder about the particularly productive work conservation service in the second part of the 20th century, but at the same time an homage and a great gratitude to its photographers-documentarian – Nino Vranić, Vinko Malinarić, Rudolf Bartolović, Živko Bačić, Miljenko Mojaš and Vidoslav Barac, who have given a fundamental and lasting contribution to the effectiveness of the conservation service with their photographs. What is more, their photographs enable the transfer of knowledge to new generations about cultural heritage on the principle of sharing.
