In this newsletter we bring you six new interviews with award winners coming from France, United Kingdom, China, Italy, United States and Switzerland. It is both the quality of these projects and shared concern for public good that bring such varied achievements all on the same stage: a teaching initiative, a costume festival, young musicians’ assistance programme, museum of social and cultural effects of communication, and, from the IMAGINES portion, application of augmented reality in recreations of 1969 Apollo 11 mission, and the D-day.

Our interviewers/members of jury cover a variety of museum and heritage projects, topics and time zones to learn more about these cases of high-level professionalism. The talks deliver a diverse selection for all interested in best practices and innovations in the wide field of cultural heritage and public memory. Enjoy the programme and stay tuned for fresh releases coming up regularly on YouTube, with one new IMAGINES and two new core programme interviews weekly!
