By Jacomine Hendrikse

The European Heritage Days (EHD) have announced a new call for European Heritage Days Stories to identify the European Dimension of heritage sites and heritage work undertaken by the communities in Europe. Do you know of a special story about European cultural heritage that you would like to share? Are you doing exciting work with heritage in your community? Then you might be interested to apply for the call for European Heritage Days Stories. The deadline is 17 January 2022.

Objectives

The European Heritage Days (EHD) call for European Heritage Days Stories initiative intends to identify the European Dimension of heritage sites and heritage work undertaken by the communities in Europe. It refers to past or existing stories of European heritage that communities would like to share and, as a second phase, potentially develop into a specific project to further contribute to their communities.

The objectives of the initiative are:

  • To encourage people to engage with Europe’s cultural heritage and to reinforce a sense of belonging to the European common space.   
  • To collect testimonies/stories that give an insight into how communities understand the European dimension of local heritage.
  • To identify and promote communities working with heritage in line with European values and with a long-term perspective of collaboration.
  • To reward communities for their efforts and to encourage them to develop their Stories further.
  • To motivate and encourage communities, European Heritage Awards/Europa Nostra Award winners and European Heritage Label Sites to participate in the European Heritage Days.
