PAST | PRESENT final event of EYCH project WeAre#EuropeForCulture

Share

WeAre#EuropeForCulture, financed in the framework of the European Year of Cultural Heritage, has the objective to realize a series of pop-up exhibitions across 2019 in various European cities, to celebrate the diversity of European cultural heritage and to empower citizens in a more participative approach to cultural heritage. The exhibitions are co-created joining institutional cultural heritage with crowdsourced stories and personal items.

As a common theme of these participatory exhibitions, the PAST | PRESENT final event of the project celebrates the richness of this European cultural heritage, its value for our contemporary life, and the importance of best practices in the cultural heritage. The key concept is that the ‘past‘ is not just opposed to the ‘present‘ as in a simple chronological approach, but it is also experienced by and exposed to the audience in a contemporary context and shared as a ‘present’ to future generations.

PAST | PRESENT – 10 European cities, 10 heritage stories

On 6-7 February 2020, a sparkling event at the House of European History in Brussels will eventually celebrate the experiences of all these participatory exhibitions that took place throughtout Europe.

Bringing together images, recordings and interactions from the various locations which hosted and created the pop-up exhibitions, this is a kaleidoscope of local history in European countries, showcasing the variety and commonalities of our cultural heritage. A multiscreen setting will allow visitors to travel through and interact with the stories unfolded at the different events throughout Europe.

The exhibition will open with an invitation-only event at the House of European History on February 6th, 2020. On February 7th, it will be open to the general public.
