Europeana Communicators

Europeana Communicators is a group for cultural heritage activists with communication skills and influence. 

You might be a ‘Guru’ - perhaps working on campaigns, newsletters, blogs, social media accounts, a ‘Contributor’ - writing blogs/articles in your field of expertise for a range of publications, or an ‘influencer’ - with a strong voice and social media network.

In this group, we discuss the latest cultural campaigns from Europeana, as well as the important communications topics and approaches relevant to the cultural heritage world today. We support each other's campaigns, share news, best practice and comms tools and resources. Join and you'll be part of a movement promoting digital cultural heritage across Europe. 

Who's who?

Chair - Peter Soemers - Europeana Network Association Members Council

Digital transformation and Europe

At the time of establishing this community, the European Union is entering a new era of digital transformation. Alongside this, the New European Agenda for Culture builds on the European Year of Cultural Heritage 2018 and aims to weave culture into the fabric of Europe’s future. It is vital for the cultural heritage sector that digital culture secures its place within that future. 

As a group of cultural heritage activists with communication skills and influence, this community aims to contribute to that conversation with the EU. Together, we can help make sure that digital culture really is at the heart of the plans for the Europe of the future. We invite communications professionals, bloggers and other social media influencers to join the community and make sure our voices are heard loud and clear.
