For this episode of The Debrief, we are in Venice for the European Cultural Heritage Summit.

At the summit, John Beauchamp catches up with Agata Wąsowska-Pawlik, director of the International Cultural Centre in Kraków.

With the bells ringing across Piazza San Marco in the heart of Venice, we discuss the latest edition of Herito, the ICC’s quarterly magazine, as well as the role the institution plays within Europa Nostra, an umbrella organisation which connects NGOs across the continent on the protection of cultural heritage.

You can also check out more on the European Heritage Hubs by checking out this episode of The Debrief, as well as this article from The First News on the Wit Stwosz altarpiece.
