The idea: "By visiting major cities and sites in the region the museum tour and conference will enable participants to compare the efforts made bymuseums in Tirana, Korce (Museum of Medieval Art), Ohrid (National Museum of Macedonia), Bitola (several different historical sites), Vergina (Tomb of Philipp II), Thessaloniki (Museum of Bycentine Culture and others) and Istanbul (private and public museums) to preserve, rebuild or establish collections and exhibitions". Deadline for registration is June 30, 2008. There is a registration fee, but a number of grants are available. Read the full announcement here.
