Pearle* 2018 Awards – BtS edition

Designed to highlight and celebrate the role of employers associations that normally undertake their activities ‘behind the stage’, the aim of these Awards is to serve as a source of inspiration for other associations as well as to increase their visibility in their own respective countries as well as internationally. On this occasion the Awards will also recognize the capacity of an individual organization in the field of Cultural Heritage.

The Award winners will be announced at a high-profile event taking place on 22nd November, 2018 at the Bozar Centre for Fine Arts in Brussels.
