CIOFF® Estonia Award of Cultural Heritage
30-05-2013/06-07-2013 Tallinn (Estonia)
The Foundation of Cultural Heritage was founded by CIOFF® Estonia in 2000. The mission of the foundation is to support the continuity of cultural heritage and to direct public attention towards the need of protecting traditional culture. The idea of creating such kind of foundation comes from the programme of UNESCO - "Living National Treasures", where public recognition is considered to be the most effective way in protecting cultural heritage. This year the award was given to two laureates and the prize was funded by the theme year.
Candidates for the award were sent by different organizations and groups all over Estonia, from almost all the counties.
In partnership with The Estonian National Culture Foundation (http://www.erkf.ee/index.php?tmp=100 ).
Event was supported by the theme year funds (http://www.parandiaasta.ee/ ).
