Višnja Kisic, 27 years old from Serbia, studying at the Centre for Museology and Heritology, Faculty of Philosophy, University of Belgrade, is the winner of the 10th Cultural Policy Research Award 2013 (CPRA).
On the occasion of the 10th CPRA Anniversary Celebration, the winner was revealed on the evening 5 November at the University of Antwerp in the framework of the 21st ENCATC Annual Conference, “Rethinking Education on Arts & Cultural Management”.
Selected amongst 36 applications from 17 countries on the wider European continent, the Award will help Višnja Kisic to carry out her research proposal during 2014 and publish her findings in 2015. She convinced the international jury panel with her research project on “Governing dissonant heritage – promises and realities of existing cultural policy tools”: “This research proposal is not only extremely relevant for heritage policy, but it will also serve to help Europeans better understand heritage in Southeast Europe and support and foster dialogue among many actors and communities,” said the CPRA Jury President, Lluís Bonet (University of Barcelona, Spain).
