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!
During this session we will present the Europeana Sport project to the wider community and bridge the divide between sport and culture and showcase that sport can bring us together as an essential part of our shared cultural heritage.
With public events in 2020 largely cancelled, public engagement events have been difficult. We speak with partners in Ireland who have been working on projects collecting stories from the public during the pandemic.
As part of the Europeana Sport season, we are looking at how organisations are using sport to overcome social problems and explore heritage. Femi Bankole tells us about how Black and Irish use social media to share stories that break down Black stereotypes and expand what it means to be Black and Irish.
