This international meeting is organized as a follow-up to the previous encounters organized in Thessaloniki (2010), Berlin (2011), Turin and Ljubljana (2012) organized to enhance cooperation and dialogue among the South-East European national history museums. The last meetings, in Turin and Ljubljana, served to discuss more in depth the contents and organization for a travelling exhibit, tentatively entitled “Imagining the Balkans”. Update and steps forward are on the agenda for this meeting.

This project is developed within the new framework initiative entitled “Culture: a Bridge to Development” that has been included in the biennial Programme and Budget for 2012-2013 of UNESCO (36 C/5) – as approved by the General Conference of UNESCO at its 36th session (October-November 2011).

The conference will comprise museum directors and experts from Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Greece, Montenegro, Romania, Serbia, Slovenia, The former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, and Turkey.

Are also invited senior representatives from European museums (German Historical Museum in Berlin, Germany) and professional organizations (ICOM/International Committee for Exhibitions and Exchange; ICOM/International Association of Museums of History).
