The European Heritage Days (EHDs), a joint initiative of the Council of Europe and the European Commission, are the most widely celebrated participatory cultural events shared by the citizens of Europe. The pan-European nature of this project contributes to bringing citizens together and highlighting the European dimension and the value of cultural heritage in the 50 signatory States of the European Cultural Convention. Over 70 000 events are organized every year in order to help raise awareness of Europe's common heritage and the continuous need for its protection, as well as to promote inclusiveness and foster creativity and imagination.
As one of the key initiatives of 2018’s European Year of Cultural Heritage, this year’s edition of the #EHDs is celebrating “The Art of Sharing.” The European Year of Cultural Heritage aims to encourage people to explore Europe's rich and diverse culture, to reflect upon and protect its unique value.
An extensive and varied programme, taking place from late August to October across the participating countries, will include exhibitions, craft workshops, conferences, tours, festivals, and several other activities. Many initiatives will explore the role of new digital technologies in the future of heritage and conservation.
