iCAN has been approved by the Heritage Council for branding under the European Year of Cultural Heritage 2018. As an iCAN member, we are proud to be able to use this symbol to highlight the work we do in our community to raise awareness and appreciation of local history and heritage, and also to reinforce a sense of belonging in a common European space.
European cultural heritage allows us to understand the past and to look to our future and this is reflected in the slogan for the year “Our Heritage: Where the Past Meets the Future”, with Ireland choosing the theme ‘Make a Connection’. This theme aims to deepen the connection between people and heritage, and build a legacy of increased public engagement.
In Ireland, the Heritage Council are coordinating and promoting a national programme of events and activities, of which we here in Maigh Cuilinn are proud to be part of.
