Think Tank

Instead of the traditional Old Town Days conference, this time our speakers and thinkers will be on the streets, right in the middle of the crowd, to discuss topics related to cultural heritage and values in the light of the European Year of Cultural Heritage 2018. In addition to the experts, the audience is welcome to think along and join the discussions.
