KÖME // ASSOCIATION CULTURAL HERITAGE MANAGERS
The start of Association Cultural Heritage Managers goes back to 2012, when freshly graduated students from the first Hungarian postgraduate heritage manager course decided to create a civil professional organization. At that time, the heritage profession needed independent platforms organized from bottom-up as well as today, and KÖME became one of the (plat)forming elements: in fact, they wanted to be the pioneer. Since then, KÖME broke up some solid panels, started professional discussions, swung important but missing topics, and worked out its own trainings, but always stayed unbroken in the commitment of connecting heritage-related professions, knowledge, colliding views, strengthening the refreshing potential, preparedness, internationality of the national heritage profession.
The KÖME members are working across Hungary, and amongst them one can find architects, archaeologists, art historians and people dealing with theatre art or environment protection.
As a professional association the strengths of KÖME hide in collaborations and using differences as values.
The motto: (Let’s do) Heritage together!
The principles of KÖME:
– complex point of view of heritage
– partnering and being a bridge
– to experiment
– professionalism and intelligibility

Lepenski Vir is one of the most interesting prehistoric cultures on the river Danube, and it was absolutely unknown until its discovery in late 1960’s. Very soon it was clear that people who lived on Lepenski Vir formed one of the oldest organized human settlements in Europe, dating for more than 9000 years in the past. They were among first architects by constructing their houses in a very specific shape. But more than anything they were among the first sculptors who were making unique sandstone sculptures, which was visualization of divine creatures or even gods.
