Since April 2021, the Europeana Sport project has held 13 events inviting the public across Europe to share their stories, memories and memorabilia relating to sport. We spoke with project partners to hear about their experience of engagement from the public and reflections on running in-person events during the COVID-19 pandemic.
With 23 June marking Olympic Day, the Netherlands Institute of Sound and Vision share work they have been doing to make new sporting heritage available through Europeana and encourage audiences to engage with their sports heritage.
In 2021, we celebrate the welcome return of sport to our summers, with the Olympic Games, the European Football Championships and many more sporting events. Explore how our Sports season will share the story of Europe through our sporting heritage in the past and the present.
In our ‘Professionals in Focus’ series, we speak to Europeana Network Association Members Councillors about their roles, working lives and plans for their time on the Members Council. This month, Nienke van Schaverbeke discusses the inspiring projects she is working on at Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision and her excitement for Europeana Sport!
