Recover, rebuild, grow
The Europeana Conference is one of the the leading events of the year for those who work in, with and around digital cultural heritage in Europe, and this year will be no exception. Europeana 2021 aims to raise voices from across the sector to empower digital transformation and explore the role of digital cultural heritage. It will inspire and support the sector as it looks to recover, rebuild and grow in a post-pandemic world.
The conference will cover themes key to the future of digital cultural heritage - and our world as a whole. Sessions and speakers at the conference will explore the digital public sphere and data spaces, participation, diversity and inclusion, collaboration, climate action, and more, as we equip participants with new knowledge, skills and connections.
A conference by and for you
We are delighted that, following the success of last year’s conference, 70% of the programme will be populated with sessions submitted by professionals across the sector through our call for proposals. The programme is being coordinated by a programme committee made-up of representatives from the Europeana Network Association, Europeana Aggregators Forum and Europeana Foundation, including representatives from diversity and inclusion, climate action and new professionals working groups and task forces.
The direction will be set each morning of the conference through an inspiring keynote and panel session from experts across the sector. Day one will look at discussions on Europe’s digital future and what it might mean for digital cultural heritage. Day two will explore what sustainable digital transformation might mean for our future, and day three will address how technology can drive social change.
Afternoon parallel sessions of presentations, workshops, lightning talks and training will shine a light on key topics throughout the sector and offer an opportunity to interact with, learn from and share your knowledge with your peers.
We will be announcing more details of the sessions planned in the coming weeks - register for the conference now to be the first to hear about them.
Designed for digital
Europeana 2021 will once again be an online conference, allowing you to join from wherever you are in the world. We’re building a designed for digital conference which will allow you to build your own programme and attend the sessions that interest you the most. Taking into account your feedback from last year, we’re giving you longer breaks between the morning and afternoon sessions and we’ll be experimenting with a new social platform to enhance your online experience.
We are looking forward to seeing both regulars at Europeana events and those new to the sector at the conference - join us to connect with an engaged, collaborative and passionate audience!
