As part of the European Year of Cultural Heritage 2018, Europeana in partnership with museums, galleries, libraries and archives across Europe, held 18 collection days in 12 countries on the theme of migration.
During the European Year of Cultural Heritage 2018, Europeana worked with cultural heritage institutions and citizens across Europe to share migration stories and objects on Europeana Migration. These stories are part of Europe’s rich and shared history of migration, and help to tell the story of Europe and the people who live here.
Together with the National Library of The Netherlands, we’re celebrating International Migrants Day and the end of the European Year of Cultural Heritage with a special day inviting people to share their migration stories and objects in the Hague.
As a part of Europeana Migration, EPIC The Irish Emigration Museum in Dublin has been hosting a series of collections days. We speak with Senior Curator, Nathan Mannion about what it takes to delve into Ireland’s migration history, and the sweet fickleness of personal legacy.
Europeana and University Library Lucian Blaga in Sibiu are inviting communities from Sibiu and beyond to this event to share their personal migration stories - and objects such as pictures, diaries, videos and letters - to our migration collection.
