In this post, Marion Ratier of European Historic Houses discusses the online initiatives European Historic Houses organised during closures caused by COVID-19, and the ongoing relevance of these projects even as some houses begin to reopen.
From March to June 2020, Europeana Communicators held a series of webinars on the theme ‘Culture from home’, in which specialists from museums, libraries, archives and educational settings shared their solutions for reaching audiences while their doors were closed. Here, co-chair and webinar moderator Susan Hazan reflects on the series.
We’re really excited to announce that Europeana 2020 will be taking place online between 11-13 November 2020, although we hope to organise some local ‘meet-ups’ as part of the conference.
Our online conference will aim to be a participatory event that gathers voices from across the sector and continent to explore all things digital cultural heritage.
