EU funded Europeana XX: Century of Change project celebrates today the launch of a new Europeana Thematic Collection: a dedicated area in the Europeana portal to showcase special cultural heritage collections and compelling stories about the 20th century and its social, political and economical changes – as documented in photographs, videos, paintings and files, all carefully selected by the Europeana XX Editorial Team.

The project was kicked off in March with the aims of enriching Europeana with new, high quality and reusable collections to depict the histories from our recent past, and of adding new user features for better engagement with Europeana’s online collections. Among the other partners, the consortium includes five Europeana aggregators who bring into the project cultural heritage materials from all over Europe.

The beta version of the page is planned to grow and expand in the next months, as the project partners continue their work, offering more galleries, virtual exhibitions, new data, and more stories!

Europeana XX Thematic Collection:

The project Europeana XX is co-financed by the European Union in the framework of CEF Connecting Europe Facility Programme under GA n. INEA/CEF/ICT/A2019/1932087.
