The Attic (a name which commemorates our first physical location) is, first and foremost, a site for the research students of the School of Museum Studies at the University of Leicester: a virtual community which aims to include all students, be they campus-based and full-time, or distance-learning and overseas. But we welcome contributions from students of museum studies - and allied subject areas - from outside the School and from around the world. Here you will find a lot of serious stuff, like exhibition and research seminar reviews, conference alerts and calls for papers, but there's also some 'fluff'; the things that inspire, distract and keep us going. After all, while we may be dead serious academic types, we're human too.

The Best in Heritage .. the world's only annual survey of award-winning museum, heritage and conservation projects

Just one more reminder!

27-29 September 2012, Dubrovnik, Croatia


The Best in Heritage was conceived as a worldwide, annual survey of award-winning museum, heritage and conservation projects. It seemed a justifiable exercise to unite and capitalize on the expertise and energy of important Juries in evaluating hundreds of candidates. The event brings these laureates together and offers an extraordinary programme in which they will present their success stories and elaborate further on their creative approaches.

The conference gives you a unique chance to see, hear, and meet representatives of these examples of professional excellence and gain insights into innovative contemporary practice. Over two and a half days, 24 projects from 20 countries will be featured, in the programme, organised in partnership with Europa Nostra. The conference is under special patronage of ICOM and is supported by Ministry of culture of Republic of Croatia, The City of Dubrovnik, UNESCO Venice Office, ICCROM, IFLA, WFFM and many others.

The World Heritage City of Dubrovnik in the last week of September is still a lively but not overcrowded place, the weather is sunny and comfortably warm. As every year, the atmosphere will be dynamic and there will be many opportunities to develop contacts and forge future partnerships and collaborations. Be sure to visit the official web-site for more details and save your place for the up-coming event, 27-29 September 2012:
