This year's focus is on assessing and communicating the value that culture has for society. We'll look at how we can measure that value, and bring that thinking into next year's Business Plan and our participation in the European Year of Cultural Heritage in 2018.


    Draft agenda

    Sessions not to be missed:

    • Cast your opinion about important network matters: Members Council elections, Joint Europeana Aspiration and Network Association Approach
    • Learn about the Impact Framework and Playbook - and pitch a project!
    • Get involved with the #AllezCulture campaign in support of the European Year of Cultural Heritage
    • Attend the European Cultural Forum on December 7

    Pitch your project!

    We have now closed our call for projects who would like to pitch during our AGM! We received 25 project proposals, from which we could only select 10. We are looking forward to seeing what each project presents and you can read about the projects in brief below! If you won’t be at the AGM, stay tuned for reports on who leaves with one year’s support from Europeana to carry out an Impact Assessment on their project.
