Handbook of Cultural and Heritage Management

1. PREFACE

The present Handbook is the result of collective work of the partners and mentors of the Erasmus+ project Digital Educational Network for Cultural Projects’ Implementation and Direction. It aims at providing  general guidelines as well as  some in-depth knowledge on issues  of Cultural and Heritage Management for people professionally engaged with Cultural and  Heritage  projects who do not possess a firm educational background in these fields. When drafting this handbook, the authors’ team had in mind mostly municipal employees, entrepreneurs in the field of culture and tourism and members of small, local cultural organizations. It can be browsed individually or, ideally, combined with the free e-learning course provided in the DEN CuPID platform.

We hope that the Handbook will match the expectations of the target audience, particularly of the trainees of the DEN CuPID project. The team of authors welcome any suggestions and remarks in order to improve it in further editions.
