About Europeana 2021

As the cultural heritage sector looks to recover, rebuild and grow in post-pandemic times, Europeana 2021 - taking place from 10 -12 November - aims to raise voices from across the sector to empower digital transformation and explore the role digital cultural heritage plays in supporting a sustainable, responsible and inspiring cultural heritage sector for today and tomorrow.

Why join?

Recover, Rebuild and Grow

Our inspiring keynotes will discuss how we can use digital cultural heritage to create a sustainable, value-led and inclusive cultural heritage sector.

Designed for and by you

We developed our conference programme with cultural heritage professionals. So if you work in, with or around digital cultural heritage, or want to learn more, join in.

Interactive and engaging

Get involved and interactive by taking part in three days of panel discussions, workshops and more. Follow and join in live post-session reflections and connect via #Europeana2021.

Designed for digital

Explore and build your own digital programme, then join in from your PC, laptop, mobile phone or tablet as together we look to inspire and support the sector to recover, rebuild and grow.

Stay connected

Just because it’s digital doesn’t mean you'll miss out on important networking and social events. With over 500 professionals attending, check out and join our fringe events.

Build your skills

Europeana 2021 helps you develop skills for working with digital cultural heritage. Whether it's the basics or gaining new skills, to level up or refine existing knowledge, it is designed for all.

Book your ticket

It’s free, quick and easy to secure your place. Sign up and, later in October, you will be given access to a 3 day programme of all things digital cultural heritage. You can pick and choose the sessions that mean the most to you and join hundreds of other cultural heritage professionals from your PC, laptop, mobile phone or tablet as together we look to inspire and support the sector to recover, rebuild and grow.
