Barbara's enthusiasm for cultural heritage began in her childhood when the family sat together telling stories and sharing memories about time, space and change. She was able to professionalise her interest in history and the devolpment of the historical cultural landscape through her studies of heritage conservation.
After a few years of renovating old houses and working for urban development, she founded the Kulturerben | Culture Heirs e.V. and is now working as a cultural heritage educator in Schleswig-Holstein/ Germany. In this context, she teaches courses for all ages, from primary school to university. In order to broaden her horizon, she is currently writing a masters thesis to become an art teacher.
Europeana opens up new opportunities for cross-border co-creative research, education, participation and communication. Barbara is excited to be more actively involved in this innovative network that makes our stories visible.
