Published on Friday, April 06, 2018 by Céline Guilleux


The REACH project, RE-designing Access to Cultural Heritage for a wider participation in preservation, (re-)use and management of European culture, is a three-year project aiming to establish a social platform as a sustainable space for meeting, discussion and collaboration for all those engaged in the promotion of participatory approaches to cultural heritage, giving tools and instruments in order to trigger a debate on how participatory approaches can contribute to develop a common horizon of understanding. The programme of the conference includes a rich mixture of skills and experiences; it offers a great opportunity to discuss and compare successful examples of participatory processes and reflect on the role of Cultural Heritage in cohesion and social integration.


10-11 May 2018, Budapest (Hungary)


The opening conference of the REACH project will be organized by ELTE University, Eötvös Loránd Tudomanyegyetem, on the 10th and 11th of May 2018 in Budapest, kindly hosted by the Hungarian National Museum.

REACH is a three-year project, started on the 1st of November 2017, to establish a Social Platform for participatory approaches and social innovation in culture.

The project, that received the EYCH label for the European Year of Cultural Heritage 2018, is supported by the European Commission in the frame of the Horizon2020 programme and coordinated by Coventry University.

In the context of radical social changes taking place at global levels, Europe faces the need for its citizens to live together in peace and mutual respect by appreciating and enjoying the diversities of their respective societies . In this light, Cultural Heritage plays an important role in contributing to social integration in Europe.

The REACH Social Platform aims to offer a sustainable space for meeting, discussion and collaboration by all those with a stake in the field of culture and Cultural Heritage, in order to contribute to unlock the potential of people to engage in culture and cultural heritage  in order to foster creativity and innovation and, thereby, to empower citizens to face the immense and rapid changes taking place in Europe and beyond.

By showcasing concrete, participatory experiences and identifying good practice by means of the project's pilots, a robust framework will be developed for building and sustaining a resilient European Cultural Heritage.

The REACH international conference in Budapest will introduce the scope of the project, offering a great opportunity to discuss and compare successful examples of participatory processes and researches and reflect on the role of Cultural Heritage in cohesion and social integration.

A dedicated poster sessions will be opened, where the participants can present their own projects.
